Sponsoring the race for the fifth year running as part of its community support programme.
The organisers of the award-winning Ealing Half Marathon, which takes place in West London on Sunday 24th September, have confirmed that Mercedes-Benz Brentford are involved for the 5th year running.
The West London Retailer, part of the Mercedes-Benz Retail Group, will be providing a new Mercedes-Benz car that will be used to promote the event and will be seen around town in the months leading up to the race.
Taking part among the expected 8,000 runners will be a team from Mercedes-Benz Brentford including General Manager Trevor Webb, who has contested the event since the first Ealing Half Marathon in 2012 and will be raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
“The Ealing Half Marathon provides the perfect opportunity for the team at Mercedes-Benz Brentford to get involved with the local community. I always enjoy competing and we are proud to get behind the race for the second year running,” said Trevor Webb, General Manager at Mercedes-Benz Brentford.
Starting near Mercedes-Benz Brentford on Great West Road, the Ealing Half Marathon recently won the “Best Half Marathon” award at The Running Awards and is one of only three half marathons in London held on fully closed roads.
“The Ealing Half Marathon is a real community event with a great atmosphere and it’s important that local businesses also get involved to ensure its continued success. We are excited to welcome back Mercedes-Benz Brentford for a second year as both sponsors and competitors,” said Sandra Courtney, Ealing Half Marathon event co-ordinator.
The Ealing Half Marathon has established itself as a firm fixture and a race not to miss in the running calendar, and the organisers are urging anyone who wants to be part of the 2016 event to sign up as soon as possible.
