Huge community support, great atmosphere and #EalingFeeling
More than two thirds of the 7,000 Ealing Half Marathon race places have been snapped up by runners of all levels who travel from all over the UK and abroad to experience the famous #EalingFeeling.
Returning to West London’s Lammas Park on Sunday 27th September 2015, the Ealing Half Marathon is a multi award-winning race known for its huge community support and great atmosphere. A firm fixture in the autumn running calendar, the race has recently been voted “Best Half Marathon” at The 2015 Running Awards in association with everydayhero for the 2nd year in a row and is now a double gold winner.
The Ealing Half Marathon starts and finishes in Lammas Park with the race, retail and charity village at its heart. The 13.1 mile single lap course takes in parts of Central Ealing, Montpelier, Pitshanger, West Ealing, Hanwell and St Stephens before returning to Lammas Park.
Entry costs are £34 for affiliated and £36 for unaffiliated runners which includes a medal and online e-goody bag for all finishers, plus entry into a draw to win a Mercedes bike. Runners can also sign up to run and raise money for the headline charity Alzheimer’s Society.
Introduced in the Olympic year in order to bring a fantastic mass participation sporting event to the Borough that would be a legacy to the Games, the Ealing Half Marathon attracts an international running field but it firmly has its roots in the local community and sees a lot of support from local businesses, residents and runners.
The Ealing Half Marathon is a Community Interest Company (CIC), which exists to benefit the community rather than private shareholders and which makes it different to the majority of races out there.
