Are you ready to move your body and get that festival feeling? A 3-day fitness extravaganza – The Hackney Festival Of Fitness – is coming to Hackney Marshes early this Summer to coincide with the Hackney Half Marathon (which some of our personal training clients are braving). We’re definitely heading down to cheer them on. If you’re already signed up to the half marathon and prefer a more manageable distance, we recommend the Community 5k, more details below and grab your tickets here.
FRIDAY 17 MAY
Wind down after the week and warm up for the weekend of sport ahead with dedicated pre-race stretch and mobility sessions. Stay fueled throughout the evening with a multitude of local food & drink trucks in the fitness festival village at Hackney Marshes.
SATURDAY 18 MAY
Hackney Festival of Fitness will feature a full day of fitness experiences for all ages and abilities alongside the free Community 5k. Get your Saturday ticket for access to a lineup jam-packed with East London’s best workouts, all descending on Hackney Marshes.
POP UPS GALORE
The Market on the Marshes is a pop-up highlighting the best of local Hackney markets, breweries, galleries and start-ups alongside top sport & lifestyle brands. The market is open to the public all weekend. Stay tuned for the full list of vendors.
This one’s for you Hackney! Saturday will also feature a free 5K around the perimeter of the Hackney Marshes. All finishers receive a medal and an official race-time. You’ll get that finish line feeling without having to run 13.1. All speeds welcome – sprinters, joggers, and walkers!
