|Take The Corporate Challenge|
Enter the Ealing Half Marathon Sunday 29 September 2013
Businesses can now enter the Ealing Half Marathon as part of a Corporate Challenge.
The aim of the Corporate Challenge is to build teamwork spirit in the work place, increase the profile of businesses taking part and promote fitness whilst raising money for charity.
There will be trophies for the fastest team and the top fundraising team as well as the fastest male and female individual runner from a Corporate Challenge Team.
A team consists of 3 to 5 runners from the same company, and a minimum of 3 runners from the team must finish the race in order to register results and qualify for the prizes. The Corporate Challenge starts at 9.15 am with the main race, and entry fees are £34 +VAT per team member which includes a finishers’ medal.
Ealing Half Marathon race director Kelvin Walker commented: “We are excited to launch the Corporate Challenge for our 2013 race, which opens up some fantastic opportunities for businesses of all sizes to get involved and encourage their employees to sign up for the Ealing Half Marathon. Running and training together is a great way to develop some healthy competition and to bond outside of the working environment, which does reflect onto staff morale and productivity. We look forward to lots of businesses registering and battling it out for the trophies.”
The Ealing Half Marathon will start and finish in Lammas Park with the race, retail and charity village at its heart. Organisers have confirmed that some improvements have been made to the route that will have less impact on residents and will encompass additional parks within the borough. The Ealing Half Marathon is one of only three half marathons in London on fully closed roads, making it a must-do in the running calendar.
The 13.1 miles will be run in a single lap, taking in parts of Central Ealing, Montpelier, Pitshanger, West Ealing, Hanwell and St Stephens before returning to Lammas Park. Runners are guaranteed to get the ‘Ealing feeling’ with the local communities reflecting Ealing’s great spirit and showing strong support for the race, which was 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.
