Run Hackney Half Marathon & Support Core Arts W/ After-Party




At Grow, we're big fans of the work of Core Arts in Hackney so for the 2nd year in a row we're putting a team of runners together to take on the Hackney Half Marathon on Sun 20 May 2018 to help support them!

This 13.1 mile route takes you all around Hackney and goes past both Grow and Core Arts along the way so we think it's the perfect combo to get fit, have fun and raise some money for this amazing charity - all at the same time.


If you want to join in but don't want to run, just come along to Grow on Sun 20 May 2018 have have some food and drinks as we'll be donating 10% of the profits from the day. If you want to run with us, here are 3 simple steps:

The Hackney Half has now sold out so sadly the only way to join TEAM GROW is if you have a place already.... if you do and want to join ..

3) Share this JustGiving link below and ask friends and family to donate whatever they can - this is a team page so no pressure to raise money on your own but we do ask that you raise a minimum of 20 each so we can add that together to raise vital funds and awareness for Core Arts.

Runners, friends and family, come down to the Run Hackney half marathon after party on Sun 20 May 2018 to celebrate and help support local mental health charity Core Arts.
