Run the Hackney Half Marathon for the BMA

Fancy doing something challenging and fun whilst also raising money for a great cause? Promised yourself you’d get your running shoes on this year and try and beat that personal best?

What better way to do both these things than run for the Bhopal Medical Appeal in the Hackney Half Marathon!

The Vitality Run Hackney Half Marathon is returning for its second year on Sunday May 10th, 2015. Following the successful debut race in 2014 – which saw 12,500 runners signing up in a matter of weeks, places for this year’s run are expected to go fast.

The Vitality Run Hackney Half Marathon is a friendly, flat DSCF3051-484x363and fast course that runs through the heart of east London. The route shows off the very best of the borough’s beautiful green spaces. Starting and finishing at Hackney Marshes, the closed-roads course will once again pass by some of Hackney’s best kept parks and key landmarks, including the world-famous Hackney Empire as well as a new and improved route through the iconic Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

We believe Dow must finally accept responsibility for Bhopal. Until then, The Bhopal Medical Appeal funds two award-winning clinics in the city. Both offer free, first-class care to victims of the gas disaster or the ongoing water contamination. The survivors have nowhere else left to turn – please help if you can.
