The UK's largest outdoor fitness festival Hackney Moves will return to Hackney Marshes in May, for a weekend of exercise and entertainment. 

Early bird tickets for the Hackney Half marathon are now available and registration has opened for free events such as the Hackney 5K and Schools' Challenge. 

Hackney Moves will take place on May 21-22 this year. Last year it took place in September, postponed due to the pandemic. 

A record 30,000 runners took part in various running events with DJ sets, food and free fitness classes were also on offer.
