World seniors snooker champion Mark Davis will hand out the awards at the Hastings Half Marathon prize-giving

The St Leonards-based world seniors champion will hand out the various awards at Azur in St Leonards this coming Sunday (April 24).

Davis, the world number 26, actually took part in the race back on Sunday March 20 to raise money for St Michael’s Hospice.

All are welcome to this family-friendly celebration of the Hastings Lions Club-organised event. Arrive from 6pm for a 7pm start.

Runners raising money for charities/good causes are asked to let the organisers know how much they have raised before the evening so that they can establish the full extent of the fundraising efforts and determine who will win the Dyer Charity Shield for raising the most money.

The official race film, produced by students from Bexhill 6th Form College, will also be shown for the first time.
