Time to start training for the 2015 Ealing Half Marathon
Just when you thought it was safe to put away the trainers (and the jelly babies) - it's back.
The date for next year's Ealing Half Marathon has been announced - Sunday 27th September and if you get in quick you can enter at the early bird price saving £5.
The 2014 race saw a record number of finishers, and the Ealing Half Marathon is now a firm fixture in the autumn running calendar.
The route remains unchanged for 2015, which takes the runners around Central Ealing, Montpelier, Pitshanger, West Ealing, Hanwell and St Stephens before crossing the finish line in Lammas Park.
It has also been confirmed that Alzheimer’s Society, who raised over £75,000 at the Ealing Half Marathon 2014, will be the Headline Charity for the 2nd year.
Race Director Kelvin Walker said: “We are pleased to announce that registration to the 4th Ealing Half Marathon is open. The Ealing Half Marathon has been going from strength to strength since the inaugural race took place in the Olympic year, and we would like to express a big thank you to everyone who has been supporting us along the way and to all the runners who return to Ealing year after year.“

A total of 8,000 places are available for 2015, with 500 early bird places up for grabs. Early Bird entry fees cost £29 for affiliated runners and £31 for unaffiliated runners, which includes a medal and online e-goody bag for all finishers. The entry fees will increase by £5 when the 500 early bird places have been snapped up.
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 race is a Community Interest Company (CIC), which exists to benefit the community rather than private shareholders.
