The route

This course shows off the best of the borough, skating around Hackney Downs and the Hackney Empire as well as gorgeous parks and greenery. This route is easy on the legs, too, with flat roads leading down to the finish line at Hackney Marshes – where you’ll find a full-on festival of fitness waiting for you (don’t worry, there’s plenty of local beers, food and entertainment too).
