Hackney Half Marathon

The Hackney Half Marathon launched in 2013 is one of the London’s most popular runs. The route starts and finishes at Hackney Marshes and takes in the famous Hackney Empire, Broadway Market and the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Why run it for Unicef?

Your fundraising through the Hackney Half Marathon can make a huge difference for children. With your support, Unicef can protect millions of vulnerable children around the world.

Did you know that £500 in sponsorship could provide a month’s supply of life-saving peanut paste to bring 22 malnourished children back to health?

Got your own place?

If you’ve already got your own place in the Hackney Half Marathon, we’d love for you to fundraise for us. There is no minimum fundraising commitment; we would only ask you to raise what you can.
