Hackney Half Marathon takes place on April 30, and the Gazette has two pairs of free tickets to give away.
Each place is worth £53 – and all you have to do to be in with a chance is answer a simple question.
So if you fancy lacing up and joining the Gazette’s own Patrick, Peter and Will on April 30, read on for details of the competition.
In the meantime, our runners are raising money for Hackney’s Winter Night Shelter. If you’d like to see some silly photos and sponsor them, visit their fundraising page.
The first ever Virgin Sport Festival of Fitness will take place on April 30 with the Virgin Sport Hackney Half Marathon.
Challenge yourself to a 13.1-mile run through roaring crowds and take in the Hackney Downs, Hackney Empire, Broadway Market, Victoria Park and the London Stadium, or get some friends together and take on the 5.5km run. Virgin Sport events will feature free race photos, premium SWAG, free pre-event yoga and bootcamps, as well as music on the Marshes.
To celebrate the first ever Virgin Sport event, we’re giving you the chance to win a pair of tickets for you and a friend to participate in the Haflney Half Marathon and immerse yourselves in the Festival of Fitness. As it’s a Virgin event, this won’t be your usual half marathon. Expect enthusiasm, fun and some of the best food Hackney has to offer at the festival village on Hackney Marshes, with entertainment at each race milestone and much more.
