The beloved Hackney Half Marathon is back and this year there will be thousands and thousands of runners, crew love, pacers, live entertainment, cheering spectators and more.

Starting on the Hackney Marshes and weaving through our beautiful Parklands you’ll find it hard to find a better running route in the capital. Other iconic locations you’ll pass on the way include Hackney Downs, Hackney Empire, Broadway Market and Victoria Park.

Once the hard work is done, chill, refuel, and celebrate with friends and family back at the Festival of Fitness on the Hackney Marshes. There will be live entertainment, music, fitness sessions, chill-out zones, and a Festival Village with local food and drink offering everything from mouth-watering vegan delights to burgers, green juices, craft beer, and bubbles!

All participants will receive free race photos, an ASICS finisher’s t-shirt and a tote bag. For a limited time only you can sign up at the early bird price of £45. Please be aware the minimum age to run is 17 years old.

Details about road closures can be found here, but to keep up to date with all the latest information on the event remember to check the event website.
