Hackney Half Marathon
Registrations for the Hackney Half Marathon 2023 are now open!
If you've got your own place, we'd love for you to join Team WaterAid! Let us know by emailing us on [email protected], or by setting up a fundraising page on JustGiving – they'll tell us you're raising money for WaterAid, and then we'll get in touch with you.
How we'll help
To help support all our runners in the lead up to race day we’ve teamed up with the company RunningWithUs to provide you with a special training package. As a member of our team you’ll receive:
- A bespoke training plan – suitable for your level of experience
- Email helpline – ask a coach or physio your training, race, nutrition or injury questions
- Twitter and Facebook ask-the-coach services and webinar sessions
- A WaterAid running vest or technical t-shirt
We also provide a fundraising pack to help you meet your targets, fundraising and event resources like balloons, collecting tins and banners (upon request) and regular newsletters with support and advice from our dedicated WaterAid events team.
If you have a question or would like to chat about joining Team WaterAid please get in touch.
Congrats on securing your own in the Hackney Half Marathon – we'd love to have you on board!
To join Team WaterAid you can either pop us an email at [email protected] to let us know you’d like to join our team, or you can set up an online fundraising page on JustGiving. They'll tell us you’re fundraising for WaterAid and we’ll get in touch to say thank you and send you a fundraising pack.
If you’ve registered for a charity place or got your own place in any of our events, you'll receive your very own WaterAid running vest a few weeks before the race.
If you're taking on a different event for WaterAid and would like us to send you a vest or jersey, please contact us at [email protected].
We've teamed up with leading sport and training coaches RunningWithUs to provide expert training plans, tips and advice.
We have bespoke training plans, put together by RunningWithUs, and you'll get direct access to the expertise of our professional coaches. Whether you’re brand new to running or a seasoned cyclist, we have a training plan to help you. If you have any specific training questions, you can contact RunningWithUs directly by emailing [email protected].
We're really sorry to hear that – please contact our events team at [email protected] to let us know you won’t be taking part.
If you’ve bought a WaterAid charity place in an event, we'll ask you to reach a minimum fundraising target. This will cover the cost of the event place and administration fees that WaterAid have to pay, and help provide much needed support to some of the world’s poorest communities.
If you're concerned you won’t reach your fundraising target, please get in touch with us as soon as possible. We're on hand to help you out with tips and ideas that will help you reach your target and we may be able to extend your deadline, so that you have that little bit longer to fundraise.
You’ve come to the right place! Check out some great fundraising ideas and inspirational stories.
Once you’ve registered for an event, we’ll also send you a fundraising guide as part of your welcome pack. This has lots of great fundraising tips to get you off to a flying start.
If you've raised money on JustGiving or VirginMoneyGiving, your job is done! All the online donations made to your fundraising page are automatically transferred over to WaterAid and allocated to your total.
If you've raised money offline, you can pay your money in online, or send in your fundraising by making a bank transfer, sending us a cheque, or paying in your money over the phone.
