Your active world experience. Made extraordinary
In an effort to reduce waste, we are encouraging participants to pick up their race pack ahead of the Hackney Half. Collection will be available during race week on the Hackney Marshes. Alternatively you can choose to have your race pack mailed to you in advance by post.
You can purchase race pack postage with your Hackney Half race entry during registration. Please note, it will not be possible to collect your race pack on the morning of the race.
No need for headphones! From the raucous, joyful spirit of jazz to the energetic and groovy compositions of brass bands, Hackney Half's extremely talented and diverse lineup of musicians will keep you motivated and inspired on route.
Make your miles count by raising vital funds for a cause that moves you
Once you cross the finish line, collect your much-deserved Hackney Half medal and race rewards from our partners before celebrating at the post-race festivities.
Collect your medal at the finish line as normal and your iTAB will arrive in the post a few days later engraved with your Name and Finish Time.
The iTAB fits perfectly into your specially designed medal and is a great way to celebrate and share your event journey. You can purchase an iTab with your Hackney Half race entry during registration.
