Races summary
Here's what races are available for Hackney Moves 2023
Half Marathon
Route information
Move silly or serious in the UK's largest outdoor fitness festival run over 3 days (19th-21st May). With two unique and iconic running events, live music, local food and drink and other entertainment this is a memorable experience, to say the least.
The Hackney Moves Festival features a Half Marathon and a 5k, and lots of other fitness fun from partners.
The whole event will have live entertainment and DJs to keep you inspired, not just at event centres but during the races both at event HQ and on race routes. So there will be no need for headphones as the streets will be alive with music, and the buzzing atmosphere.
The Route
Runners will cruise down Mare Street through a carnival of sound. You will pass some iconic landmarks and venues, including the famous Town Hall, the historic Broadway Market and Hackney Wick, which will be full of vibrant street art.
Not only will this be a spectacular route with all the sights and sounds to take in, but it is also flat and fast, making it perfect for anyone looking for a personal best time.
While the 2023 Route will be similar to previous years, keep an eye out for the updated map which will be released closer to the event date.
