Five spaces are available for people wishing to run for MAC-UK in the Hackney Half Marathon on 20th May 2018.

We’re asking our supporters to join the run, set up a fundraising page and rally their friends, family, colleagues and contacts for sponsorship.

The funds raised from the Half Marathon will go towards MAC-UK’s work with excluded young people, enabling them to be part of the solution to tricky social ills.

£2,000 would allow MAC-UK to support one young person intensively for one whole year, boosting our long-term focus on co-production in local communities, by putting people and their strengths first.

The 13.1 mile race is a UK Athletics certified course. It takes place around East London, with runners following a course through Hackney Downs and past the Hackney Empire. The run starts and finishes at Hackney marshes.

There will be live music and entertainment at every mile along the route to keep runners motivated, and MAC-UK cheerleaders at the finish line to meet and congratulate our heroic supporters.

The spaces on offer have been pre-paid for by MAC-UK so no cost will be incurred by the runner.

If you are interested in taking a place, contact us via the Contact Us page on the website or email [email protected]. If you know somebody who might be interested in taking a place then please share this page with them or get them to get in touch.
