About Us

Hastings parkrun is a FREE weekly 5km event for runners of all standards, which takes place every Saturday at 9:00am in Seaside Road, Hastings, TN38 0AG. It is not a race against other runners, but a 5k timed run and it can really be whatever you want it to be, whether that's for fun or as part of a training plan.

It offers an opportunity for all the local community, male or female, young or old, to come together on a regular basis to enjoy this beautiful park and get physically active into the bargain. We want to encourage people to jog or run together irrespective of their ability – this event is truly open to all and best of all it really is FREE!

Taking part is easy – just register before your first ever parkrun. The great thing is that you only ever need to do this once! Then just set your alarm for Saturday morning and get yourself there!

Every week we grab a post parkrun coffee in The Bo Peep Pub - please come and join us! Maybe swap stories about your run that day, chat to other runners over a cup of tea or coffee and just be an important part of this new running community.

So whether you are a complete novice looking to get yourself started on your own "running journey" or a seasoned athlete wanting to use this as a part of your training schedule, you’re welcome to come along and join us.


  • Active Hastings Hastings Borough Council: Active Hastings provides a wide range of sporting activities across the town, aimed at encouraging people of all ages and abilities to discover the benefits and enjoyment of exercise!

  • Hastings Round Table: Our Round Table were very supportive of our application via their Community Leader Simon Richardson. Especially as it involves the whole thing being run by volunteers on a weekly basis and is free to all.

  • Hastings Lions:
