About this event

Join 16,000 runners in the Hackney Half Marathon with a route that’ll take you through Hackney Downs, Hackney Empire, Broadway Market, Victoria Park and the London Stadium.

It’s a flat and fast route through the vibrant cities of East London with bands and DJs at every mile and cheering crowds to help carry you over the finish line!

You can then celebrate at the Festival of Fitness on the iconic Hackney Marshes with food, drink, music and even free fitness classes!
