Hackney Half Marathon 2020 – Event Postponed

As it stands, the Hackney Half Marathon will not be taking place on 17 May 2020, as a result of the decision to postpone, or cancel, all mass public gatherings, to try to contain the spread of COVID-19. The event organisers are working towards securing a new Autumn event date. You will find details of the new date on this page as soon as it has been announced. You can still join our team by completing a registration form.

"Many parents like me find that it’s after their child is able to come home after treatment finishes that they have time to actually think about what has happened to them."

This #ThankYouFriday we’d like to say thank you to @AmazonNewsUK. They kindly donated £10,000 which will help us continue to fight childhood cancer in these uncertain times, and help achieve our vision of a world where every child survives their cancer diagnosis. Thank you. https://t.co/GAiTKm797p
