The 2021 Hackney Half is currently scheduled to start at 09:00 on Sunday May 16th.
Over the course of the coming months we will be working on plans to enable the race to take place in a Covid-secure way, which may include allocating runners into specific arrival and race start times to control the flow of runners onto the course.
The start process will be seeded with your actual start time dependent on your predicted finish time. Further detailed information will be shared with you well in advance of race day, along with being included in the Race Day Guide, which will be emailed to runners shortly before race weekend.
There is a race cut-off time of 3 hours and 30 minutes for each runner, after which any runners still on the course will be asked to move to the pavements, so that we can give Hackney residents their roads back!
