I think £29 is reasonable for city marathon considering the hugh costs of Road closures, great to have an event like this on in London in Olympic year especially as every other London races seems to be by ballot.
This is almost on my doorstep so I'll be running. I don't think the price is unreasonable. VLM is actually very cheap for what you get so comparisons with that are not really representative. I was hoping the route would be a bit flatter though - there are not many hills in Ealing but what there is appear to have been found!
It's going to be an awesome run. Its such a pretty part of london with lots of greenery and the price is really competitive...
The Royal Parks half is £45 i think so thats a lot more expensive than the Ealing half...
I would encourage anyone who is looking to do a half marathon in london to sign up. The area has great transport links too...
It's also great to have such a big event happening so local to where i live...
We're continuing to receive a fantastic amount of support from runners, residents and businesses in the borough.
We'll soon be offering T-Shirts and hoodies for sale, so you can show your support while training over the next 6 months. Watch this space for more details.
Looks like this event is gathering momentum nearly 1600 entries already, Suppose that fact that it probably the only half marathon in London that hasnt a ballot or low capacity helps. Really looking forward to it now.
Over 2000 people signed up now!!! This and the Olympic torch relay are making Ealing very cool this year
Woo its going to be a big event and great to see that there is a Running Club behind it (Ealing Eagles Running Club) so it will be properly organised. Can't Wait.
Who's still doing this? I'm in on virtually nil training for a year so I'll be plodding painfully round to sneak in within 3 hours.
Race pack arrived a couple of weeks back and I am looking forward to supporting a local race. A gentle 10 mile run this Sunday followed by some short gentle runs during the week then let the race begin.
