It's been going for just two years but it has most definitely made its mark.

On Saturday (11th) Ealing Half Marathon beat off well established opponents - Royal Parks Foundation and the BUPA Great North Run and won the top accolade of best half-marathon at the Running Awards.

The #EalingFeeling was definitely in the air as the team received the award from Mike Bushell at the prestigious awards which took place at a gala in central London.

Kelvin Walker, Race Director commented: “We are overwhelmed by the support of our runners and exceptionally proud to be voted the Best Half Marathon. I’d like to thank everyone who has been involved with the development of the race over the last couple of years, we are very grateful to be honoured with this title.”

The third Ealing Half Marathon takes place on Sunday 28th September 2014 and organisers are urging runners to sign up as soon as possible to experience and be a part of the “Best Half Marathon” in the UK.

Alzheimer’s Society is the headline charity for the Ealing Half Marathon, with a range of other charities using the race as a platform to raise funds and awareness.

Public places cost £32 for affiliated runners and £34 for unaffiliated runners, and all finishers receive a distinctive medal and an online e-goody bag after the race.
