The Ealing Half Marathon was recently voted as the best of its kind in the UK for the third year in a row. We are holding another competition to give you the chance to win one of its coveted race places.
Runners of all abilities are signing-up to take part in the fifth annual event, which will take place on 25 September. It costs £36 for affiliated runners and £38 for unaffiliated runners. But you could be in with a chance of winning a race place for free, along with an official ‘hoodie’ top and T-shirt, by entering our competition (see below).
The race starts and finishes in Lammas Park and features a 13.1-mile route on closed roads through the leafy streets and parks of central Ealing and the surrounding areas.
Ealing Half Marathon was started in 2012 to build on the legacy of the Olympic and Paralympic Games in London, with the endorsement of local organisations including Ealing Eagles running club and Ealing Council.
It has grown every year – and it is expected there will be 8,000 runners, 700 volunteer helpers and up to 25,000 spectators this year.
The success has not gone unnoticed and Ealing won ‘Best Half Marathon in the UK’ at the Running Awards in 2014 and 2015 – and now 2016 too.
The competition we ran in April was won by Alan Quinn. To be in with a chance of winning the same prize Alan won (a free race place for the 2016 Ealing Half Marathon, the official hoodie and the T-shirt), answer the following question correctly: In which park does the Ealing Half Marathon start and finish?
