Run, Zebra, RUN!

After months of training and hitting the pavements around Hoxton Square, a few of the Zebra team decided to take on the challenge of running the first ever Hackney Half marathon. We set off in the scorching heat to complete the 13.1 mile race around East London – starting and finishing in the Hackney Marshes. There was a huge turnout on the day with 12,500 runners making their way around the city passing Victoria Park, the Hackney Downs and the Mabley Green on the way.

Check out the route we covered around Hackney:

After a lot of sweat, a few tears and plenty of blisters we battled to the finish line to receive our shiny medals – a great achievement for everyone!
