Vitality Run Hackney 5K, Saturday 7th May
The 5k launches the weekend’s events, with 2,000 free places available for local runners. This run starts and finishes at Hackney Marshes, taking in a flat route across the park in between. The straightforward approach contributes to the fun atmosphere as runners can enjoy the experience on the day without feeling daunted by the effort of a marathon distance. It’s the perfect opportunity for new runners to try the race experience. All finishers will receive a medal to commemorate their achievement – as well as a bottle of water and a banana by way of instant reward!
This is a flat, fast half marathon that shows off Hackney and its many green spaces as well as the iconic Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Vitality Run Hackney Half Marathon has firmly marked its position as one of the top ten half marathons in the UK.
