Thank you for thinking of #TeamRNIB for the Hackney Half Marathon and helping us smash the barriers that stop people with sight loss thriving.

The Hackney Half Marathon is one of the country’s most popular runs: the flat 13.1 mile route is great for beginners looking for a gentle first half, or great for experienced runners to set a personal best. Run past the famous Hackney Town Hall, through the historic Broadway Market and Hackney's many beautiful parks and green spaces.

Join Team RNIB and take on this running challenge to raise vital funds helping to support blind and partially sighted people when they need it most.

  • Registration Fee: £25
  • Sponsorship Pledge: £250

How your fundraising helps

Every day, 250 people in the UK start to lose their sight. Many people won't get any practical or emotional support when they need it most. We want to change that.

It costs just £250 for someone with sight loss to attend an RNIB Living Well with Sight Loss course which help attendees increase independence, boost confidence and connect with others to share experiences.

Your fundraising will help ensure that no one faces sight loss alone.
