Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or want to set yourself a new goal, we’d love to have you take on a challenge for ThinkForward and don our famous lightbulb yellow.

Take one of our places in the Hackney Half or the Royal Parks Half Marathon. We’re here to support with your training and help you smash your fundraising target. We’ll keep you motivated from your first training jog all the way to the finish line.

Hackney Half

16 May 2021

Fundraising target: £300

Due to Covid-19 the 2020 Hackney Half has been deferred to 2021.

Explore East London – Hackney’s running carnival shows off everything the borough has to offer, moving through the heart of one of London’s most diverse and most exciting areas.

Beginning and ending on the Hackney Marshes, you’ll pass through Mare Street, Broadway Market, and Victoria Park. With music and support all along the route, Homerton, Dalston, and Hackney Wick transform into a fitness festival.

Here’s the route.

Royal Parks Half Marathon

Fundraising target: £500

Due to Covid-19 the 2020 Royal Parks Half has been postponed to Sunday 11 April 2021.

London’s most beautiful run – through four of London’s Royal Parks and past some of the city’s most famous landmarks.

Pass through Trafalgar Square, St James’s Park, Green Park, the Wellington Arch, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens and the Royal Albert Hall in the heart of the city. You’ll never feel more London-y.

Here’s the route.
