Hackney Half Debuts

Run Hackney logo

The inaugural Run Hackney Half Marathon will take place on Sunday in one of London’s most upwardly mobile boroughs. London 2012 gave this Olympic borough a new lease of life and the hosting of its first ever half marathon is another sign of its growth into a happier, healthier community.

The roads of Hackney will be closed for the event which will pass the famed Hackney Empire theatre, through Broadway Market, alongside London Fields and through the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The Race Village opens at 7am with the race starting at 9am.
