Expect warm up and cool downs, recovery and stretch sessions, and more. There will be a multitude of local food & drink trucks, live entertainment and post-race celebrations. The village will be open to the public from 7AM on Sunday 19 May.
Cruise down Mare Street through 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.
