Church Water Stations
Ealing Half Marathon are delighted to have the five Anglican Churches alongside the route staffing the water stations once again in 2019.
The congregations will again hand out bottles to runners who may be in need of a little divine inspiration as they tackle the 13.1 miles
Nearly all of the churches involved will reschedule their services and, with a number of their flock taking part or volunteering.
Water stations will be set up at St Peter’s, at the two-mile point; St Barnabas at four miles; St Stephen’s, after six miles; St Mary’s, Hanwell, at mile nine; and St John’s, Mattock Lane, when runners have a mile to go. This year we also have the addition of St Christopher’s on Borders Road providing a well needed fuel station and break-out zone at mile six and a half.
The Ealing Half Marathon starts and finishes in Lammas Park with the race, retail and charity village at its heart. The single-lap course takes in parts of Central Ealing, Montpelier, Pitshanger, West Ealing, Hanwell and St Stephens.
Sandra Courtney said: “Places to the race are going fast and we would like to encourage anyone wanting to be on the start line this September to register as soon as possible.”
Race entry costs started at £38 for affiliated runners and £40 for unaffiliated runners, the sooner you sign up, the more you save beating price rises as the race approaches. All finishers receive a distinctive medal, water, finish funnel goodies and an online e-goody bag after the race.
The ever popular Ealing Mini Mile also returns on Saturday 28th September. A one mile run around Lammas Park aimed at young runners.
