Overview

The Hackney Half is back, accompanied by our Go Fit Yourself lineup of classes to get everyone moving. Don't miss the music and art, roaming entertainment, Hackney's finest bites and sips, and more.

Virgin Sport Hackney is a festival of fitness for every body. Spectators (or as we like to say, spectathletes) can take Go Fit Yourself bootcamp style classes led by London's leading fitness instructors, or chill out at one of our dedicated Fan Hubs. Once the hard work is done, it'll be time to celebrate just as hard with local food, flavours, beers, entertainment and more.
