London’s largest and most popular half marathon, the Wizz Air Hackney Half Marathon is also a part of the annual two-day Hackney Moves festival across May 20-21.

Starting off in Hackney Marshes the marathon course follows a flat route through Hackney, showing off the borough’s many green spaces.

This weekend’s event which hosted over 20,000 runners marked a decade since the inaugural Hackney race in 2014.
