With just under two months until race weekend, the Ealing Half Marathon has almost filled its 7,000 spaces as runners from all over the UK and abroad secure their spot to experience the #EalingFeeling.
The Ealing Half Marathon keeps going from strength to strength since the inaugural race took place in 2012, confirmed in April with the race taking home a fifth trophy in the “Best Half Marathon” category at The Running Awards.
Sandra Courtney, Race Director commented: “We are overwhelmed by the support of our runners and the community behind us. I’d like to thank everyone who has been involved with the development of the race over the last six years, we are very grateful to you all”.
The seventh Ealing Half Marathon takes place on Sunday 30th September 2018 and organisers are urging runners to sign up as soon as possible to experience and be a part of the race voted the “Best Half Marathon” in the UK three years in a row. There are less than 30 days to race registration closes.
Alzheimer’s Society and Cancer Research UK are the headline charities for the Ealing Half Marathon, with a range of other charities using the race as a platform to raise funds and awareness. Runners have helped raise over two million pounds since 2012 and the event encourages those running to keep boosting this total.
Corporate teams are talking a big interest in our event to encourage team building and motivation by either signing up as runners to compete or sending volunteering teams. A total of 700 volunteers are needed to help stage the Family and Children’s Mini Mile (now sold out) and main half marathon over the last weekend in September.
It promises to be the biggest year yet for the race which was introduced in 2012 as a legacy to London’s Olympic Games.
The Ealing Half Marathon starts and finishes in Lammas Park, West London on Sunday 30th September and features a 13.1-mile route on closed roads around the leafy streets and parks of the Borough. It is well known for its huge support and lively atmosphere with over 30,000 spectators out cheering on the course.
Prices started at just £38 when sales opened in October for this fully road closed event in London and finishers of the 2017 race received a further discount of 15%.
