The Andrew Carter Memorial Mile

By News

Plog-olution with Ealing Half Marathon

By News

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 http://bit.ly/2ylPV87) 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.

Register for FREE here http://bit.ly/2ylPV87

See you on Saturday.

Getting ready for the #EalingFeeling

By News

** Resident Information**

We are always so grateful for all the support and assistance that the residents of the Borough of Ealing give to us on Ealing Half Marathon weekend 💚

In preparation for the big #EalingFeeling weekend in 3 months time (Sunday 29th September 2019), we have all the details of road closures ready for you. Information is available on our website now to allow plenty of time for planning: www.ealinghalfmarathon.com/resident-information/

We will work with you on the day to allow for safe access and egress up to the course closures. Please bear in mind that no vehicle movement is possible once the race starts. If you have an appointment, a taxi booking, an event to get to, visitors planned, vehicles will need to be parked off the course or have no direct access if you are on the route after a certain point early in the morning.

Share this with those you know who may need it, new neighbours who are unfamiliar with the event, church congregations, those with regular medical visits or meals on wheels deliveries etc and we look forward to another safe and spectacular Ealing Half Marathon that the borough can be proud of!

We contact all medical services and food delivery agencies ourselves but we find each year this doesn’t always reach those on the ground so any help to make sure more people know is always appreciated.

Please contact us at info@ealinghalfmarathon.com if you have any questions about travel and access on that weekend and we will be happy to help.

Thank you once again for all your patience and understanding.
