GoodGym aid station at Hackney Half – Broadway Market

Volunteer at the Hackney Half and run another Virgin Sport race for FREE


Please note that this party has been cancelled.

Come along to cheer on the many GG people who’ll be racing and pacing again this year. We’ll be running this aid station at the top of Broadway Market, in the heart of the borough.

Back by popular demand, we’re now due to operate TWO of the 6 aid stations at this year’s Hackney Half. This one is around mile 9, at the top of Broadway Market where it meets London Fields.

In this central location, it’s a great opportunity to be out amongst the carnival atmosphere of a big sunny race, and get GG out there and seen and remembered by thousands of people competing, supporting or just passing-by…

The role itself amounts to handing out countless cups of water to people racing whilst yelling encouragement in their faces - you’ll love it!

Start: 7.30am Broadway Market

Bethnal Green Central Line is a 15min walk away. Central Line is served by Night Tube, connecting it with the 4 other Night Tube lines all weekend long.

Finish: 1.30pm.

(Although in the past we’ve always finished rather before this) We’ll be 15mins walk from the finish and the fantastic Festival of Fitness, so well placed to disappear afterwards to find your people who’ve competed.

If you do come along there, in the past we’ve gotten finishers shirts and other loot for our volunteers.

How to get involved:

If you already have a Rosterfy account, all you need to do is email me.

If not...

  • Please follow this link to sign-up with Virgin Sport on their volunteer platform hosted by Rosterfy.

It’s imperative you do this to be counted in – you’re volunteering for Virgin Sport not GoodGym, so signing-up there is what matters, not here on the GG site.

  • Each aid station requires 25 people, so please drop me a mail with your name so I know who each 25 people are, and who’s going to be expecting a free race place from Virgin Sport afterwards (daniel@goodgym.org)


All Virgin Sport volunteers receive a place for a subsequent race within a year – so this will be:

AsicsLondon10K - 5th July

Oxford Half - 11th October

Hackney Half 2021 - TBC

Oxford Half entry is balloted nowadays but if you volunteer, you can shortcut the ballot. Depending when you buy them, these bibs cost up to £56.

Any questions, please just let me know (daniel@goodgym.org)
