Schools Challenge

The organisers of the award-winning Ealing Half Marathon have confirmed that over £28,000 was raised at the 2018 race for local schools through an inspired fundraising initiative. The event on 30th September 2018 saw hundreds of parents, teachers and governors from schools all over the borough lace up their running shoes to raise much-needed funds, and their efforts have more than exceeded expectations. Ealing Fields High School were the challenge winners and took home an additional £250.00 presented by Ealing Half Marathon.

It is expected that general places for the 2019 race will sell out in advance, as they did for 2018, and those wishing to be on the start line in Lammas Park in September are encouraged to secure their place early.

The 13.1-mile single lap, traffic-free course takes runners through parts of Central Ealing, Montpelier, Pitshanger, West Ealing, Hanwell and St Stephens before returning to Lammas Park.
