HACKNEY

20 MAY

Virgin Sport Hackney is a festival of fitness for every body. Spectators can take classes led by London's leading fitness instructors, or chill out at one of our dedicated spectator zones. Once the hard work is done, it'll be time to celebrate just as hard with local food, flavours, beers, entertainment and more.
