At Grow, Hackney we're big fans of the work of Core Arts in Hackney so for the 3rd year in a row we're supporting their work with Anthony, Grow's Marketing and Events Manager running the Hackney Half Marathon on Sun 19 May 2019 to raise funds for this amazing local charity.
This 13.1 mile route takes you all around Hackney and goes past both Grow and Core Arts along the way so we think it's the perfect combo to get fit, have fun and raise some money for this amazing charity - all at the same time. We're also be making a donation from the after-party at Grow with DJ Dominic Benjamin on the decks as runners rest their feet in our canal side gardens.
