Vitality Run Hackney is London’s freshest half marathon and one of the top ten half marathons in the UK.

Professional runners set off on the 2015 Run Hackney race

The route starts at the beautiful Hackney Marshes and takes in the best of the capital’s vibrant East End. Breeze your way past the famous Hackney Empire. Pick up the pace at Broadway Market. Stretch your legs alongside London Fields. Finally, catch your breath and follow in the footsteps of legends through the iconic Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Runners are guaranteed a buzzing atmosphere, with loads of local supporters lining the streets and live entertainment to spur you over the finish line.

It’s a fast, flat route, which makes it perfect for runners of all ages and abilities: from elite international athletes to first-time runners.
