Hackney Half Marathon

Distance: 13.1 miles / 21 km
Location: Hackney, London
Minimum fundraising target: £200
Registration fee: £40

As the Anna Fiorentini Performing Arts School celebrates its 20th Anniversary, we need your support now more than ever.

We are seeking a group of runners to take part in the Hackney Half Marathon 2021 to raise vital funds for the Fiorentini Foundation. The pandemic has had a devastating impact on many young people and with the crisis widening the attainment gap, provisions like ours have become essential. The money you raise will make a tangible difference through initiatives like our Bursary Scheme which provides free places at our schools.

Hackney has a very special place in our heart as our founder, Anna Fiorentini, was born and bred there and set up our first not-for-profit school in Hackney in 2001. So as we celebrate twenty years of being in Hackney, we think it is the perfect year for you to take part and join in our celebrations!

This iconic 13.1 miles race will take you through the vibrant streets of East London on a largely flat course. This event is a great way to motivate you to keep fit in these summer months. Knowing that you’re supporting a good cause and raising money for a local charity can give you a sense of purpose and the boost you need to get up and move. You’ll experience a plethora of health benefits, not only to your physical body, but to your mental health as you challenge yourself to help your local community.

If you register for the race through us, you’ll get a t-shirt and online fundraising pack with details on how to raise money. So if you can hack the Hackney Half, click the button below. The deadline for registration is 2 September 2021.
