The Ealing Half Marathon will return to West London’s Lammas Park next year, with a confirmed date of Sunday, September 27.

Registration for the 2015 race opens today (Friday) with the first 500 entrants benefiting from a £5 Early Bird discount.

This year’s race, held last month , saw a record number of finishers, and the Ealing Half Marathon is well known for its huge community support with runners travelling from all over the UK and abroad to experience the #EalingFeeling .

The race was voted ‘Best Half Marathon’ at The Running Awards 2014 and is now a firm fixture in the autumn running calendar.

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 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 second year.

Race Director Kelvin Walker said: “We are pleased to announce that registration to 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.“

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.
