Ealing Half Marathon

The organisers of the award-winning Ealing Half Marathon have confirmed that over £12,500 was raised at the 2016 race for a local school through an inspired fundraising initiative. The event on 25th September saw a team of over 30 parents, teachers and governors from North Ealing Primary School lace up their running shoes to raise much-needed funds, and their efforts have more than exceeded expectations.

Entries for the 2017 Ealing Half Marathon are now open, and any schools interested in entering a team should email the event organisers at info@ealinghalfmarathon.com for further details.

Ealing Half Marathon pacer and marshal releases book about running with cancer

By | News | No Comments

While for most people running is a way to keep fit and healthy, for Ealing resident Jenny Baker it has become her saviour. A pacer and a marshal for Ealing Half Marathon, Jenny received the devastating news that she had breast cancer just after she turned 50 years old and was at the peak of running fitness.


Rather than let the disease get the better of her, Jenny’s instinct was just to keep running, and in doing so she found a secret weapon to come to terms with the diagnosis and build resilience against all that lay ahead.
Read about Jenny Baker’s journey here.

RUN AND HELP THE HOMELESS THIS CHRISTMAS.

Sign up in December to Ealing Half Marathon 2017 and not only do you get the early bird price but we’ll also donate 10% of all race entrant fees to the Winter Night Shelter who provide essential services for those in need.

Ealing Churches Winter Night Shelter provide emergency dormitory style accommodation for up to 14 guests from those who are sleeping on the streets, are at immediate risk of rough sleeping locally and the ‘hidden homeless’. The shelters are open not just over Christmas but all during the winter months (from late November to the end of March).

On each night of the week, whilst the shelter is open, a different church opens its doors to our guests, providing a hot meal, somewhere to sleep, breakfast and above all else, companionship and friendship. On average, guests stay with us for about 4 weeks before moving on – hopefully to more permanent housing.

In 2014-15, Ealing had 287 people recorded sleeping on the streets (a 31% increase over the previous year), according to the GLA official “CHAIN” reports, and many more in precarious accommodation on friends’ floors, night buses, etc. ECWNS stands in the gap by providing for the most basic and essential needs for homeless people – sleep and food. A person who has been made homeless faces enormous risks as a rough sleeper including substance abuse, poor physical and mental health, and acts of criminality. ECWNS seeks to minimise these risks by creating a safe space for homeless people to find temporary respite while helping them to secure more permanent accommodation. Providing temporary respite ‘buys’ some more time before guests become further entrenched in homelessness and are adversely, and sometimes irreversibly, affected by the risks presented by homelessness. Each guest is offered 28 days in the shelter, during which time ECWNS works with partner agencies (St. Mungo’s Broadway, Ealing Soup Kitchen and Acton Homeless Concern) and local housing services to look for a way to move on.

Why wait? Sign up now to help those in need, make your run count even more by helping give back this Christmas: www.ealinghalfmarathon.com
