I already have a place

The Virgin Sport Hackney Half is undoubtedly the coolest event of the season. Run through East London's trendiest borough along this flat and fast route.

Your Hackney Half experience

With a new route announced in 2020, you'll cruise down Mare Street through a carnival of sound, pass by the famous Hackney Town Hall, head through the historic Broadway Market, and then take in Hackney Wick, the most vibrant addition. This section of the route will bring all the vibes, with Cheer Dem Crew stationed here bringing all the Cheer Dem Spirit.

After the race you can enjoy the Hackney Festival of Fitness with your friends and family, with entertainment, workshops and the best of local food, drink, and lifestyle brands.

The difference you can make

By signing up to the Hackney Half Marathon with Scope, you'll be raising vital funds to help us end inequality for disabled people.

We know that nearly half of disabled people feel excluded from society. Scope works tirelessly to campaign for change so that disabled people and their families can enjoy equality and fairness in their everyday lives.

£24 could cover the cost of running sleep learning sessions for five parents. These Sleep Right sessions allow parents in similar situations to meet and learn about sleep together.

£65 could pay for one week of support for a disabled person to access our Starting Line service; a pre-employment training programme for disabled people at the start of their journey into work.

£450 could cover the cost of 50 phone calls to the Scope Helpline, providing free, independent and impartial advice and support on issues that matter to disabled people and their families.

I can honestly say that I don’t think I could have coped had it not been for the helpline. They have given me so much time and support through all my difficulties and battles.
