"Hailsham High Street was full to capacity last May with around 2,000 people, including competitors and supporters. The atmosphere was electric and I was impressed with how many local clubs and community groups participated to raise funds for their chosen cause.

"After the success of this year's event and last year's inaugural spectacular, the Hailsham Community Run is one of the largest growing events in the running calendar in our county. The date is set for next year, so mark it in your diaries today and be one of the first to register on September 1!"
