Hackney Half

Hackney, London

Organiser's Description

Cruise down Hackney's Mare Street through a carnival of sound, pass by the famous Town Hall, head through the historic Broadway Market, and then take in Hackney Wick, which is flush with vibrant street art. Explore green spaces including Haggerston and Downs Parks and cross over six canals and rivers. Cross over the finish line into a full Festival of Fitness on the Hackney Marshes. Just like the borough, this route brings the spirit.

No need for headphones! Live entertainment and DJs will keep you motivated and inspired on route. Stay tuned in 2020 when we'll announce the Hackney Half route entertainment lineup.

A perfect starter or your First-ever Half

Numbers first: there were more than 16,000 participants (if any trust to the official results), but definitely much more people overall participated in this event. Without any doubt, it was the biggest race in my modest running career, so far.

Nevertheless, the race was very well organised, as well as the starting village. Perfect timing, very spacious and well accessible area, all necessary facilities and what not. The course was very flat: just some rolling hills and a couple of bridges, which is absolutely typical for London. My Garmin watch measured only about 67m of elevation for the entire race.

It was my first half marathon and I couldn’t ask more from the organisation! Amazing feelings all day long. A big thank to the people in the street always cheering up for every runner!
See you next year
