Hackney Half Marathon
|Date||Postponed to Autumn 2020|
Important Update: Due to the COVID-19 outbreak the Hackney Half Marathon has been postponed. A new event date has not yet been confirmed, and the new date is expected to be announced by the end of April.
If you are already signed up to the Alzheimer’s Society team we will be contacting you by email with the new event date, further information and your options.
Registration is still open for the rescheduled date, and you can sign up now to join Team Alzheimer’s Society.
We will, of course, continue to offer all our usual training and fundraising support to runners throughout this time. Please get in touch if you have any questions.
The Hackney Half Marathon is a hugely popular race in the running calender, with more runners taking part than ever before.
In this sell-out East London race you'll run past the famous Hackney Empire, through Broadway Market and alongside London Fields, as well as covering a few miles in the iconic Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
Soak up the community atmosphere as you run through the streets of Hackney on this flat 13.1 mile route.
As well as helping to change the lives of people affected by dementia, there are some great benefits to joining our team. Unite with us, and we will support you through every step of your journey.
Whether you sign up for a charity place or already have your own place, by joining our team you will receive:
- our support pack with everything you need to kick off your training and fundraising
- comprehensive training plans and advice from our professional training coaches
- regular newsletters to keep you motivated
- your very own Alzheimer's Society technical running top to wear with pride, and iron on name letters
- the biggest cheers on race day
- our friendly Events Team on hand to help whenever you need us
We know that fundraising can be just as challenging as the event, but we’ll be here to support you every step of the way. When you sign up to run for us, you'll receive a support pack with tips and advice to help you with your fundraising, allowing you to make a difference to people living with dementia.
To kick-start your fundraising in the meantime, why not set up a JustGiving page?
You can also print off a sponsorship form to share with friends and family.
If you have cheques that you need to send in to us, please use our paying in form and post to:
Want to get friends and family involved? You could organise a sweepstake, where each player makes a donation to guess your finishing time and whoever picks the closest time wins a small prize of your choice.
