Cheering supporters at the Ealing Half Marathon

These are very uncertain times and we hope you are keeping safe and well. Along with the rest of the country, we are monitoring the Coronavirus situation closely. We take the health and safety of everyone involved at any of our events extremely seriously.

An independent race for the community

With lots of races having to postpone to near our event then Ealing Half Marathon 2020 could be the perfect race for an autumn training plan. If you haven’t already chosen our race, please consider and share with other runners our not-for-profit event 💚 There are going to be a lot of choices so we’d really appreciate your support.

Our fully road closed half marathon has a personal touch. Organised by local people and for the benefit of the community we bring you a large scale professional race with runners, volunteers and community at the heart of it.

Please help us by spreading the word about Ealing Half Marathon with your running community to others who may be looking for a race that gives back.

Cardinal Vaughan wins Ealing Half Marathon Schools Challenge

By News

Cardinal Vaughan Memorial School has won the Ealing Half Marathon 2019 Schools Challenge.

Cardinal_Vaughan_winners

Schools Challenge 2019

The school entered a team into Ealing Half Marathon in order to help raise funds for the Vaughan Foundation. This is the school’s charitable arm and the funds will allow pupils to compete in extra-curricular sport, specifically it will provide pupils with funds to ensure they can participate in extra-curricular tours, e.g. Italy Rugby Tour 2020 and to provide an extra sporting opportunity for the wider school community.

Cardinal Vaughan’s team was comprised of teachers, parents and pupils. It was the first Half Marathon for the majority of the team and was thoroughly enjoyed by all. The team trained together weekly and in fact, their running club has increased in attendance since the Half Marathon, with training runs on Wednesday and Friday lunchtimes.

The Schools Challenge encourages schools in the local area to enter their own teams into the Ealing Half Marathon in order to raise money for their individual school. The school was presented with a cheque for £250 to recognise their efforts and achievement.

As well as raising vital funds for school projects, taking part in a big sporting event such as the Ealing Half Marathon is a fantastic way to boost fitness and inspire younger generations to keep active.

The Ealing Half Marathon team, and its community arm Ealing Half Marathon Legacy, carries out a lot of work within schools too – encouraging pupils to stay active and to participate in sport, linking into Ealing Council’s Get Moving campaign.

Thousands of pupils have listened to talks by the team at schools around the borough – and many have been inspired to get involved in running, through taking part in junior ‘parkrun’ events, joining the junior section of Ealing Eagles running club, or running in the annual Mini Mile at the half marathon. Participation in the Mini Mile has more than tripled since the talks started being held.

A few primary schools have even set up running clubs themselves with the help of the half marathon team.

Race Director Sandra Courtney commented, “We would like to congratulate Cardinal Vaughan Memorial School for winning the 2019 Ealing Half Marathon Schools Challenge. They put in an incredible effort to train and fundraise for the event and have been rewarded with a fantastic cheque which they can put towards a variety of projects and activities at the school”.

Mr Brett, Head of First Form, Geography, Physical Education at CVMS added:

“The success of Cardinal Vaughan Memorial School has always been as a result of the close link between parents, pupils and staff and this was, once again, evident through the wonderful success of the Ealing Half Marathon. I hope this effort from the participants has inspired the whole Cardinal Vaughan Memorial School community to continue to access a healthy and active lifestyle. Once again, we are very grateful to those who have donated and therefore supported the participants of this event”.

The 2020 Ealing Half Marathon takes place on Sunday 27th September and entries are available, costing £38 to £50. The sooner you sign up, the more you save.

Jonathan Poole and Lucie Custance win 2019 Ealing Half Marathon

By News


The award-winning Ealing Half Marathon took place today, Sunday 29th September 2019, and welcomed thousands of runners to the leafy streets of West London for its eighth anniversary race.

It once more proved to be a day of incredible community support and superb running achievement, with many spectators lining the route to cheer on the runners and spreading the legendary #EalingFeeling despite a few rain showers.

The race set off from Lammas Park at 9am, with local resident and comedian Shappi Khorsandi sounding the start horn, and proceeded through Central Ealing, Montpelier, Pitshanger, West Ealing, Hanwell and St Stephens before returning to Lammas Park. The atmosphere was fantastic as athletes from over 26 countries made their way round the 13.1-mile course and there were scenes of jubilation as they crossed the finish line and celebrated their accomplishment.

Jonathan Poole of Serpentine RC was back in Ealing, and after dominating from the start he managed to defend his title and take home the win for a third consecutive year, finishing in 1:10:14. Alexander Bampton of Highgate Harriers and Nicolas Besson of Serpentine RC were battling it out for second place, with Bampton crossing the finish line 3 seconds ahead of Besson.

Lucie Custance of Clapham Chasers claimed the women’s title in a time 1:19:03, with last year’s winner Rachel Thomas of Victoria Park Harriers & Tower Hamlets AC finishing in second place in 1:19:36. Jenni Ball of Windsor Slough Eton & Hounslow AC took third place in 1:21:05.

Ealing Half Marathon race day followed a hugely successful Ealing Mini Mile on Saturday 28th September, which welcomed 1,500 young runners aged 1-16 to Lammas Park and was sponsored by local independent Catholic girls’ school St Augustine’s Priory. There was also a Family Mini Mile race for children aged 5 and under, and the event set the scene perfectly for the half marathon race on Sunday morning.

Lots of familiar faces were seen on the Saturday, with many young runners taking part each year and working their way up the age categories. The afternoon kicked off with the Family Mile, which saw young Ealing Eagle Daniel Ellison come first in 7:20. Mikal Hasim and Nicole Bourne won the ages 6-7 category whilst Oskar Parker and Kara Bryan came first in the age 8 category. Jack Gleeson was back to win the age 9 trophy this year, with Alya Johnson the fastest girl.
