Virgin Sport is launching four 2017 festivals of sport in the UK and US starting with Hackney on 30th April.


Festivals of sport have something for everyone including athletes, new participants, family and friends. They are both challenging and welcoming, and customized to each host borough or city. Festivals of sport include a distance run, more accessible short run and group fitness training. Active experiences are combined with local food, music, art and culture for a unique experience.


People can registration for Virgin Sport Hackney on, where participants can register themselves, friends, teams and fans. Virgin Sport Hackney includes: the Hackney Half (a 13.1 mile run through Hackney); a new Chase your Mate 5.5k (to give 110% and fun competitive spirit to a 5k); and a free fitness + yoga bootcamp on Hackney Marshes, with paid access for a VIP front row. Tickets also include the celebratory festival experience. During the run, every mile will have a different form of entertainment for runners.


Virgin Sport is passionate about enhancing the lives of young people and supporting festival host communities. In its first Hackney event, Virgin Sport partners with Youth Sport Trust to get more kids in Hackney playing sports. Virgin Sport welcomes all prospective charity partners to its events and charges charities the same rate as participants, to encourage more people to move for a cause.
