New for 2021

MOVING TO SATURDAY

We've moved the event to Saturday, alongside the Hackney 5k, to create a family-focused day and enable parents and teachers to access the site without the challenge of Hackney Half road closures.

 

FREE ENTRY

The 2021 event will be free of charge, enabling more schools and students to participate.

 

DIGITAL REGISTRATION

We have moved our Schools' Challenge registration online to make the process easier for both teachers and parents. No more chasing paperwork!
