School Challenge

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.

Now you can do the same for your school.

Run with us and we’ll provide you with:

  • Presentation from a qualified coach at your school to all participants
  • Training plans for all abilities
  • Entry discount for your runners
  • Use of our logo for branding
  • Support pack with fundraising platform, tips and advice
  • Entry into the Ealing Half Marathon Top Fundraiser Leader Board and a cash prize for the winning school
  • Recommended printer for branded t-shirts
  • Publicity on our social media

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

The Ealing Half Marathon is looking forward to welcoming 8,000 runners from over 25 countries to West London this autumn. It is expected that general places for the 2017 race will sell out in advance, as they did for 2016, and those wishing to be on the start line in Lammas Park in September are encouraged to secure their place early.

The 13.1-mile single lap, traffic-free course takes runners through parts of Central Ealing, Montpelier, Pitshanger, West Ealing, Hanwell and St Stephens before returning to Lammas Park.

The Lead Charities for the 2017 Ealing Half Marathon will be Cancer Research UK and Alzheimer’s Society and 15% of funds raised by the schools will be split equally between our two headline charities and Ealing Half Marathon CIC (5% each).

Entries for the Ealing Half Marathon 2017 are now open. Until 30th April 2017 the fee is £38 for affiliated runners and £40 for non-affiliated runners, and between 1st May – 31st July 2017 this rises to £40-£42. The organisers are expecting the race to sell out by the end of July.
