The Virgin Sport Hackney Half Marathon is returning for its sixth year in 2019 and St Joseph's Hospice is delighted to be chosen as one of the official local charity partners! Virgin Sport Hackney is one of the fastest growing half marathons in the UK. It's right on our doorstep; in fact the route goes right past the front of St Joseph's! Join us for the 2019 event which is looking to be the biggest and best year yet. You'll have a fantastic time being part of Team St Joseph's, but don't just take our word for it, see what some of our previous Hackney Half runners have to say!

The Virgin Sport Hackney Half Marathon is a friendly, flat and fast course that runs through the heart of east London. Starting and finishing at Hackney Marshes, the closed-roads course will once again pass by some of Hackney’s best kept parks and key landmarks, including Broadway Market, Hackney Empire and the London Stadium.

All our runners will receive:

  • St Joseph's Hospice running vest
  • Fundraising pack
  • Dedicated fundraising support
  • Hospice welcome evening with top tips from fitness experts 
  • Regular team emails
  • Fantastic on the day support (including massages from our hospice therapists at the finish , and support from the loudest cheer point in Hackney!).
