Can I set up a team with my work colleagues/friends/family?

Any charity, company or group of friends can set up a ‘Team’ to run. Follow these steps and you’re all set 🙂

  1. Go to our REGISTRATION page to start your registration.
  2. The first team member starts their entry and become the Team Captain (so choose the best person for that job) – they will be responsible for inviting future team members.
  3. While they are completing their entry they will come to a section called ‘Team Info’ select ‘Create a Team’
  4. Choose whether to create an open or private team and also choose to prepay or not prepay for places, select how many you need.
  5. A link is created for you to send to additional runners and they can use it to register and will automatically be added to your team.

Simple as that!

The Team Captain can then see at any time by logging back into their account who they have sent links to, who has used them etc and it’s a great way to know who to chase to register if you need them to.

3. Race Information

Can I track a runner?

A tracker will be available on race day. The link will be posted here before race day.

Can I walk some or all of the course?
Walking some or all of the course is fine, but please note there is a cut off regarding street closures.
We will once again have tail runners for the race to help you round. The official cut off time to complete the course is 3 hours as set by the Local Authority.If you are passed by the tail runners you will need to move to the pavement for your own safety as the roads will then begin to open as per local authority requirements. Participants that choose to continue will be informed that they can continue the race as an active pedestrian, but that roads will re-open, course support (including medical and water cover) will be removed and they may not receive a recorded finish time. A sweeper vehicle will follow after the tail runners and will be available to any participants who do not wish to continue.

Will there be a single mass start or will there be a staggered/phased start?

There will be pace areas & markers in the start funnel to encourage runners to start in the area most suited to their expected finish time for the enjoyment & safety of all.

There will be a single mass start with a few seconds gap in between small waves and we expect all runners to filter across the start line within a short period of time.  As the race will be chip-timed this small delay will not affect the official chip times of any runner.

4. The Course

I’m a local resident, where can I get information?

We have a webpage dedicated to the local residents on our website. You can find out about road closure times plus a route map HERE.

We expect up to 7,000 runners, thousands of spectators and hundreds of volunteers to take part. Many of the runners are raising money for charity.

The 13.1 mile course will cover parts of Montpelier, Pitshanger, Central Ealing and Hanwell before returning to Lammas Park via Uxbridge Road.

To ensure the safety of participants and spectators, all the roads that the event passes through will be closed to traffic at some stage during the event. To minimise any disruption to residents, the race organisers will close roads as the lead runner approaches and attempt to re-open roads no later than 15 minutes after the last runner has passed by in Montpelier, Pitshanger and Central Ealing. All other areas remain closed until the times stated to allow runners to return to Lammas Park safely. Movement around the course before the race starts will require your co-operation as course checks are carried out and equipment is put in place.

Affected Buses that operate in the area will be on diversion from 6:30am until 1pm on 29 September.

Will there be much traffic on the course?

No, the organisers have planned a route with road closures in operation throughout the course.

The route has been planned in conjunction with Ealing Council, TfL, London Buses and the emergency services.

Can I wear headphones or listen to an mp3 player during the race

Particpants are strongly discouraged from wearing headphones or listening to MP3 players during the race.

Although the route is fully traffic free, runners must still be able to listen out for marshal instructions and emergency vehicles on the route.

The race organisers hope that you decide not to wear headphones and fully enjoy the immense support along the course – which has won us Best Atmosphere award as voted by Runner’s World – and conversation of your fellow runners.  If you do decide to wear headphones on race day, we ask that you ensure the volume is low enough to be able to hear marshal instructions and other runners approaching.

I’m a local resident, do I need to move my car on race day?

We have a webpage dedicated to the local residents on our website. You can find out about road closure times plus a route map HERE.

You will not need to move your car unless there is a suspension in place (notice signs will be up) or you have received notification to park off course through your door. While the race is in place you will not be able to move your car on or off the course, runners will be on the roads from 9am to 12pm and although they may not be in your area yet, we need to close roads to stop traffic bleeding through.

If you need to get somewhere while the race is on you will need to check the route and/or speak to us (info@ealinghalfmarathon.com) and park your car off course in advance. We will be sending our resident information in the post ahead of the event to 30,000 local addresses as well as reminding cars on the route of the impending race 1 to 2 weeks before the race. We will also be putting up over 400 road signs to notify those in the area.

We expect up to 7,000 runners, thousands of spectators and hundreds of volunteers to take part. Many of the runners are raising money for charity.

The 13.1 mile course will cover parts of Montpelier, Pitshanger, Central Ealing and Hanwell before returning to Lammas Park via Uxbridge Road.

To ensure the safety of participants and spectators, all the roads that the event passes through will be closed to traffic at some stage during the event. To minimise any disruption to residents, the race organisers will close roads as the lead runner approaches and attempt to re-open roads no later than 15-30 minutes after the last runner has passed by in Montpelier, Pitshanger and Central Ealing. All other areas remain closed until the times stated to allow runners to return to Lammas Park safely. Movement around the course before the race starts will require your co-operation as course checks are carried out and equipment is put in place.

Affected Buses that operate in the area will be on diversion from 6:30am until 1pm on 29 September.

Is it easy to park my car near the start/finish area?

Start and finish address: Lammas Park, Ealing W5 5JH

Although public transport is the preferred option, if you do choose to drive there is parking in central Ealing, only a 10 minute walk from the start/finish area.

Ealing Broadway Shopping Centre – The car park can be reached from either Grove Road via St Mary’s Road (opposite Ealing Green) or Windsor Road via Ealing Common.

Springbridge Road – The car park can be reached from Haven Green, just off Ealing Broadway.

More information on Council car parks can be found here: http://www.ealing.gov.uk/info/200332/parking/640/car_parks

Note: Ealing Council do charge for car parking on Sundays and some road/parking restrictions will be in place specifically for the half marathon.

Please use public transport wherever possible, but if you have no other option please consider car sharing to help make the Ealing Half Marathon a green event.

Is there baggage storage at the event?

Yes we have a large marquee baggage storage at the race in the race village at the start.

Sustainibility
We are very proud to have been recycling our plastic bottles since our very first race in 2012 before it became a known topic, to us it has always been important.
Reducing our plastic bottle use is something we look at into all the time, we recycle our bottles plus we use the smallest possible size bottle we can find (these have been reduced in size by over 50% since our first race) we are committed to keeping our impact to a minimum. We only buy PET1 bottles which are recyclable.
To aid our commitment to reducing waste we do not give out goodie bags at the finish, these are often filled with flyers and unwanted items. Runners are given plenty of goodies but they simply carry them out of the finish funnel. We also don’t do adult finisher t-shirts as feedback has been that they are not wanted, so not supplying them reduces landfill and our carbon footprint as no transportation is needed to get them to the race.
We always look for replacement of our water bottles, we won’t stop doing that as we want to add to our hard work at continuing to think outside the box to keep Ealing Half Marathon one of the leaders in reducing waste.
What time does the race start?

The race will start at 09:00am on Sunday 29th September 2019.  Please make sure you arrive at the Race Village in Lammas Park in plenty of time to deposit your baggage and enjoy the atmosphere and warm up.

Start address: Lammas Park, Culmington Road, Ealing W5 5JH

Why am I asked for my estimated finish time during online entry?

This information is very useful for the race organisers when planning the start & finish areas as well as for managing road closures, marshalling, water stations and clean-up.

Will there be pacers leading groups?

Yes, we’ll use experienced Xempo runners as pacers to lead a wide range of pace groups to their target time.

So whether you are running or watching there’s a delicious snack or meal just waiting to be eaten before or after the race.

Will you be using Chip Timing for the race?

Yes, we’ll be using Chip Timing to ensure that all runners receive an accurate personal time in addition to the gun time.

6. Support a Charity

Can I choose to raise money for another charity of my choice?

Yes, it’s entirely a personal decision.

Runners purchasing their own places: Register on our website www.ealinghalfmarathon.com and contact the charity of your choosing, you can work with them to get advice on how best to raise funds for them plus they will be able to let you know what support they can offer you throughout your training.
Also any charity, company or group of friends can also set up a ‘Team’ to run for any charity of their choice by doing the following:
1. The first team member would complete the registration and become the Team Captain.
2. On the registration page under ‘Team Info’ select ‘Create a Team’
3. They can create an open or private team and also choose to prepay or not prepay for places, select how many you need.
4. A link is created for you to send to additional runners and they can use it to register and will automatically be added to your team.
Simple as that!
The Team Captain can then see at any time by logging back into their account who they have sent links to, who has used them etc and it’s a great way to know who to chase to register if you need them to.
Each charity has its own requirements and support for runners so please contact yours directly to find out more.
Do I have to raise a minimum amount?

Each charity has its own requirements. Please contact yours directly to find out.

We would love for you to run for one of our amazing Headline Charities but you can run for any charity you choose. This year we have partnered with Alzheimer’s Society, Cancer Research UK, Macmillan Cancer Support and Meadow House Hospice.

 

Do I have to raise money for your Charity Partners?

No, you don’t need to fundraise for one of our Charity Partners, but we hope that you will take the opportunity to do so and support their very worthy causes.

How can I raise money for your Charity Partners?

EALING HALF MARATHON HAS HELPED RUNNERS RAISE OVER £2,000,000 IN JUST SEVEN YEARS FOR VARIOUS CHARITIES.

Lets keep the #EalingFeeling going.

Two easy options for how runners can get involved:

1. Contact the charity of your choice and they can arrange your place and start you on your way with full support, training advise and a t-shirt (if applicable).

2. Buy your race place directly from us here, then create a fund raising page and raise money – simple as that!

Getting your trainers on for a run is a great way to raise money for a good cause.

And just because you’ve decided to run to raise money for charity doesn’t mean you can’t mix things up a bit to make your efforts grab people’s attention. In recent years, fundraisers have completed the half marathon dressed in everything from a Judge, a Tiger, a Duck through to a Storm Trooper meaning that the sky is literally the limit when it comes to picking your running get up!

There is a prize for the best fancy dress costume completing our race so use your imagination and encourage donations.

To secure your place in this year’s run, sign up now at www.ealinghalfmarathon.com.

7. Post Race

Can I order an iTab/Where is my iTab?

Once the results are finalised, your iTab will be posted out to you in the days after the race.

If you missed out you can still order one after the event here.

If you have any queries regarding your iTab please contact My Sporting Times, office: +44 (0)1189 332761, email: service@mysportingtimes.com.

 

Do I receive a medal at the finish line?

Yes.

All finishers will receive a quality commemorative medal, specially designed for the Ealing Half Marathon.  Hopefully this is something that runners will cherish for years to come.

I volunteered at last years event, how do I claim my free race place?

Thank you for volunteering with us in 2018.

An email was sent to all our volunteers in October 2018 with the code to claim your free place before 31st December 2018. If you miss this deadline, you would need to volunteer again in order to gain a place in our 2019 event instead.

Volunteer places are not transferable as they are for volunteers who helped on the day only.
Volunteer places are not deferrable as we absorb the costs of registration and all other costs associated.

Sustainibility
We are very proud to have been recycling our plastic bottles since our very first race in 2012 before it became a known topic, to us it has always been important.
Reducing our plastic bottle use is something we look at into all the time, we recycle our bottles plus we use the smallest possible size bottle we can find (these have been reduced in size by over 50% since our first race) we are committed to keeping our impact to a minimum. We only buy PET1 bottles which are recyclable.
To aid our commitment to reducing waste we do not give out goodie bags at the finish, these are often filled with flyers and unwanted items. Runners are given plenty of goodies but they simply carry them out of the finish funnel. We also don’t do adult finisher t-shirts as feedback has been that they are not wanted, so not supplying them reduces landfill and our carbon footprint as no transportation is needed to get them to the race.
We always look for replacement of our water bottles, we won’t stop doing that as we want to add to our hard work at continuing to think outside the box to keep Ealing Half Marathon one of the leaders in reducing waste.
Where can I buy an Official Technical T-Shirt or Hoodie?

You can buy our fantastic EHM hoodies and t-shirts at our online shop here.

Plus on race day at the EHM shop in the race village!

Will I receive a race T-Shirt on completion of the race?

We are in discussion about sustainable items including t-shirts so it might be a nice surprise we can tell you about later. Alternatively if you would like to be the sponsor, please contact us at info@ealinghalfmarathon.com to discuss this further.

The desire to keep the Ealing Half Marathon an environmentally friendly event is prominent. Once again we have chosen to opt for an e-goody bag which will be distributed by email after the race, featuring lots of great offers from our partners and sponsors, just for our finishers.
