Little Ealing and Mount Carmel Fun Run
A fabulous success!
The peace and quiet of Lamas Park was shattered on Sunday as the Little Ealing and Mount Carmel Fun Run took off.
As sunbathers soaked up the rays the local Northfields children and then adults raced around the perimeter providing a distraction from the normal Sunday activities enjoyed in the park.
They were witnessing the first joint event of two of our prominent primary schools in Ealing, Little Ealing and Mount Carmel, encouraging parents, pupils and the wider Northfields Community to take part.
Winners’ prizes were provided by Top Notch gym in Brentford.
“We’ve held the Kids Rumble for many years and last year added the Adults 5k but felt that this great event could be a perfect opportunity to join with our neighbouring school Mount Carmel and have it reach further into the Community. Next year we want to make the Fun Run even bigger and encourage even more local people to take part. There’s nothing organised like this locally so we want this to be a Ealing wide event and not just for schools”.
“It was great to be part of such a fantastic school and community event promoting fitness and at the same time fundraising for local schools and charities”.
"It was delightful to see such excited and motivated children. Two girls, both called Emily, ran round hand in hand; a group of 6 year old boys held their own most laps competition; and along with the Mum's, Dad's, Grandma's & Granddad's and other family members who joined in, it was truly a community event. Thank you to everyone who took part or just came along to support the event. We’d also like to say a big thank you to Andrew West for organising the event for Mount Carmel, St John’s Ambulance, Will to Win and Top Notch Health Centre for supporting the run. We look forward to seeing you all again next year”.
