The organisers of the first Ealing Half Marathon, which takes place on Sunday 30th September 2012 are holding a competition on their Facebook & Twitter accounts to find out why people are running the event.

Entrant’s just need to complete the sentence “I’m running @EalingHalf Marathon because……” and post their entry via Twitter or on the Ealing Half facebook page www.facebook.com/ealinghalf

Competition entries close on 31st March and the best entry from Twitter and Facebook will each win an Ealing Half Marathon Techincal T-Shirt.

Leader of Ealing Council, Cllr Julian Bell, himself no stranger to twitter (@juliangbell) will be judging the entries and selecting the winners in early April.

Have a read of a selection of the best so far:

@ldnmi: I'm running the @EalingHalf because I want to try to do more things that scare me.

@steve_griff_uk: I'm running the @EalingHalf because I used to struggle to run 1km around the Common at 6am, so I am looking forward to a slighty larger lap!

@MFM_Ealing: I'm running the @EalingHalf marathon because I don't think I can and I want to prove myself wrong!

I'm running the Ealing Half Marathon because I can't run yet. And I dislike running. But I dislike failing more, and my dislike of failing is (hopefully) bigger than my dislike of running.

I am running the Ealing Half Marathon because the miracle is not to finish; the miracle is to have the courage to start

I'm running the Ealing half marathon because I cant run a full marathon :D

I'm running Ealing Half Marathon because ..... I used to live in Ealing as a child and it will be like running down memory lane for me!! :-)
