Hackney Half May 15

Join the team who are funding research into over 200 types of cancer.

With the Rio Olympics on the horizon, 2016 is set to be another huge year for sport. What better way to celebrate this unforgettable event than reliving those London 2012 memories and taking on the Vitality Run Hackney Half Marathon?

Join the Cancer Research UK team for FREE when you commit to raising £400 to beat cancer sooner.

Sign up now and join us on a 13.1 mile route that starts in the heart of the Hackney Marshes and cuts through the centre of the Queen Elizabeth Park, passing by the Olympic Stadium, the Copper Box and many other 2012 landmarks. We’ll be supporting you all the way with expert training and nutrition advice, plus a team top so that our cheer teams won’t miss the opportunity to scream your name.

Every day around 10 young people in the UK are diagnosed with cancer and, despite vastly improved survival rates, it is the leading cause of death in children, teenagers and young adults. This year all the money raised at the Vitality Run Hackney Half Marathon will go directly towards Cancer Research UK Kids and Teens to find new cures and kinder treatments for young people facing cancer.

You can join the team that’s beating childhood cancer sooner.
