...Whoever said brewers don't run?

This year, for the first time in Hackney Half history, The Five Points is assembling a crew of runners to compete in the Hackney Half Marathon 2019 and fundraise for their charity partner and local branch of Mind.

The Five Points advocates exercise as a force for positive mental health, especially in the beer and alcohol industry, and what better than to run our biggest local running event, the much loved Hackney Half Marathon, for Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest.

Running the 13.2 miles is a crew of Five Points employees (and a couple industry friends, too) from all parts of the business and the profession. From complete beginners to marathon runners, the Five Points team showcases all abilities united in their aspiration to run the Hackney Half for their charity partner this year!
