Plog-olution with Ealing Half Marathon

By 30th July 2019News

The Ealing Half Marathon Plog-olution takes place this weekend!!

Starting at 1pm on 3rd August and will offer a 5K run or a 2K walk option, so that participants can run or walk the distance that suits them best.

Entry is free (here and all participants receive a free dry-wick Plogolution t-shirt. The meeting point is in front of Hanwell Community Centre and all equipment is provided.

The efforts of Plogolution are very much in line with the ethos of Ealing Half Marathon, which has its own sustainability measures to reduce the environmental impact of its autumn race. Since the very first Ealing Half Marathon in 2012, plastic bottles from race day have been recycled and these have been reduced in size to the smallest size bottle available. As part of their commitment to reducing waste, runners carry their post-race goodies out of the finish funnel rather than receiving goodie bags with flyers and unwanted items. The race has also made the decision not to offer finisher t-shirts as feedback showed that these were not wanted; this in turn reduces landfill and the carbon footprint of transporting them to the race.
