Start fundraising

The Hackney Half Marathon is a fantastic 13.3-mile journey through some of Hackney’s most eclectic neighbourhoods. Your starting point is the bustling streets of Dalston, known for its exciting nightlife and array of independent shops. From there, you’ll traverse the beautifully modern and quirky environs of Haggerston before heading towards Hackney Wick, a vibrant artistic hub with its industrial charm.

Experience the rich cultural tapestry that is Hackney, as you push your limits across a route that is as much about the stunning urban sights as it is about endurance. This is your opportunity to run through the heart of East London, soak in its energy, and cross the finish line with an immense sense of achievement.
