Church Water Stations
Ealing Half Marathon are delighted to have the five Anglican Churches alongside the route staffing the water stations once again in 2017.
The congregations will again hand out bottles to runners who may be in need of a little divine inspiration as they tackle the 13.1 miles
Nearly all of the churches involved will reschedule their services and, with a number of their flock taking part they will be enter an informal “churches challenge” to keep the #EalingFeeling going.
Water stations will be set up at St Peter’s, at the two-mile point; St Barnabas at four miles; St Stephen’s, after six miles; St Mary’s, Hanwell, at mile nine; and St John’s, Mattock Lane, when runners have a mile to go. This year we also have the addition of St Christopher’s on Borders Road providing a well needed fuel station and break-out zone at mile six and a half.
The Ealing Half Marathon starts and finishes in Lammas Park with the race, retail and charity village at its heart. The single-lap course takes in parts of Central Ealing, Montpelier, Pitshanger, West Ealing, Hanwell and St Stephens.
Having an increased capacity of 8,000 runners’ organisers say they are well on course to beat last year’s sell-out 7,000 entry.
Sandra Courtney said: “Places to the race are going fast and we would like to encourage anyone wanting to be on the start line this September to register as soon as possible.”
Race entry costs starts at £36 for affiliated runners and £38 for unaffiliated runners, the sooner you sign up, the more you save. All finishers receive a distinctive medal, water, finish funnel goodies and an online e-goody bag after the race.
The ever popular Ealing Mini Mile also returns but this time on Saturday 23rd September. A one mile run around Lammas Park aimed at young runners aged 6 – 16. Our Mini Mile sold out in just 6 days this year!
