The final countdown to Virgin Sport’s Hackney Half Marathon has officially begun! There’s only a couple of days and a few dynamic stretches to go before the big race day on Sunday. But did you know that Virgin Sport is actually throwing a 3-day Festival of Fitness this year? Whether you’re running yourself, taking part in fitness classes or heckling from the sidelines, you’re going to need to carb up!
Best known for the Hackney Half Marathon which will take place on Sunday, this year the Hackney Festival of Fitness is extending the good times over an epic three days of sport, fitness, and food! Why not start your weekend with a pre-race warm-up session and a cinema screening on Friday evening, or head over on Saturday for a day of fitness fun, entertainment and Feast It’s delicious food line up!? You can find out more about the event - from timings to events - HERE.
We’re extremely excited to be supplying some street food royalty at Hackney Festival of Fitness this year to serve the hungry masses across the festival village. Take a look below at some of the best eats in show this weekend - look for the knife and fork on the map to find us!
