Tom Maconie is running in the Virgin Sport Hackney Half Marathon!

Run 4 Cancer - About Us

Set up by a team of running enthusiasts, all of whom have lost a family member or a friend to cancer, Run 4 Cancer is primarily a provider of days out and short-breaks for British families affected by cancer. We also make grants to UK based care institutions and support research into the positive effects of exercise (e.g. running) and how it can help with cancer prevention and recovery.

On Sunday 20 May 2018, Tom Maconie will be joining others in this fantastic half marathon.

Tom will run through vibrant East London making his way via flat and fast city streets, running past the Hackney Downs and the Hackney Empire. Tom will cross over the finish into a full festival of fitness on the Hackney Marshes

Commenting on his challenge, Tom said:

"Hello. I'm running a half marathon this year for a cause that I believe is extremely worthwhile. I've never run this far in one go. Ever.

I can't describe how awful cancer is. However, I know well the horrific effects it has on the family & loved ones of those suffering from it. As far as I am concerned every penny that goes towards helping those with cancer and their loved ones is money well spent. Please give generously if you can!

Thanks very much.
