Sunday May 8th sees Gymbox teaming up with the freshest half marathon in the capital – the Run Hackney Half Marathon. Now in their third year, Run Hackney have firmly marked their position as one of the UK's top ten half marathons, attracting in the region of 15,000 runners.
Run Hackney starts at Hackney Marshes, and takes you on a flat, fast route through Hackney. Breeze your way past the famous Hackney Empire. Pick up the pace at Broadway Market. Stretch your legs alongside London Fields. Finally, catch your breath and follow in the footsteps of legends through the iconic Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
For all those non-racers, supporters, family and friends, we’ve designed a day of bespoke fitness classes to keep you entertained in the race village. There will be two dedicated training zones. Get inspired and push your limits with our Sweat Drench Team, or if that’s too hectic (or you’re hungover) you can relax and stretch in our Holistic Retreat.
Racers will get the motivational pre-race warm up, which will wake you up and get you off on the best foot. Post-race you will be able to cool down and stretch to aid your recovery with the help of our team of class instructors and Very Personal Trainers.
