Virgin Hackney Half Marathon

For the first time ever, this year places for the Hackney Half marathon sold out. This marathon takes runners around leafy Hackney & parts of Tower Hamlets which was a feast for a runners eyes.

The run took place on the 20th May 2018

 

The race, which was a total of 13.1 miles, was peppered with a joyful crowd eagerly cheering us on. Nothing is more of a delight to a runners eyes than to see a crowd excited – and cheering them on.

This run cost £45 entry fee which went towards various charities.

This marathon is special because even the spectators join in, with Fit camps led by London trainers and a festival around the marathon itself.
