Run through the heart of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic park in this unique East London half marathon.

Starting in Hackney Marshes and cutting through the heart of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic park, the inaugural Run Hackney Half Marathon is an event that you won’t want to miss. Run through the vibrant centre of East London and prepare yourself for an Olympic feeling as you channel the spirit of 2012 when you pass the Olympic Stadium, the Copper Box and many other olympic landmarks.

Thanks to research, over 400 people now survive cancer every day. This progress has only been possible thanks to the support of people like you. There’s good reason for optimism, but we can’t stop until everyone can live free from the fear of cancer.
