The route

The Hackney Half route sees runners cruise down Mare Street though a carnival of sound, pass by the famous Town Hall, head through the historic Broadway Market, and then take in Hackney Wick, which is flush with vibrant street art. Explore green spaces including Haggerston and Downs Parks, cross over twelve canals and rivers, and enjoy a panoramic view of the Olympic Park.

The cheering crowds will carry you past highlights like the Hackney Downs and the Hackney Empire — plus there will be live bands and DJs at every mile to keep you going. Cross over the finish line into a full festival of fitness on the Hackney Marshes. Just like the borough, this route brings the spirit.

What we provide

  • A dedicated contact at St Mungo’s, who will give you one to one support all the way.
  • Top quality breathable running vest and water bottle.
  • Cheering posts along the route for your family and friends.
  • Charity marquee with complimentary massage in the Festival of Fitness Village
  • A fundraising pack filled with help, advice and top tips to increase your sponsorship.
  • Online network to communicate with other St Mungo’s runners.
