Hackney – Festival of Fitness


Virgin Sport Hackney Half marathon is on the 30th April so come on down to the Hackney Marshes to run or cheer on the runners.

Now if running isn’t your thing then don’t worry Virgin Sport has hooked Hackney up with a brilliant music/sport festival.

Virgin Sport aims to bring people together through sport, across all types of fitness and experience, with an irresistible line-up to get everyone moving and grooving. The Virgin Sport Hackney Festival of Fitness on April 30th will be a momentum-fuelled day full of challenging fun.

The day will feature the Hackney Half-Marathon, a new 5.5k run (with a buy one get one ticket option so you can bring a friend), and free fitness and yoga classes throughout the day on the Hackney Marshes.  The festival also celebrates the Hackney host community, with local entertainers, live artwork installations, bands, DJs and some of East London’s best food and drink.

Registration for the Hackney Half and the 5.5k run are currently open on Virgin Sport’s website
