New Backers For Ealing Half

Ealing Half Marathon start

Organisers behind the Ealing Half Marathon have confirmed ASICS as the official sportswear and training partner of this year’s event. They have also announced that Up & Running will be the official sports retail partner of the 2015 race. 

The 4th Ealing Half Marathon takes place in the west London borough on Sunday 27 September 2015. A firm fixture in the autumn running calendar, the race has recently been voted 'Best Half Marathon' at The 2015 Running Awards for the second year in a row.
 
Both ASICS and Up & Running will have a presence in the race village on race day and promote the Ealing Half Marathon through their channels. ASICS will supply prizes for the winners of the Ealing Mini Mile, whilst Up & Running will supply the prize vouchers for the Ealing Half Marathon winners, including the age category winners, fastest Ealing resident (male and female) and best fancy dress.  
 
Event co-ordinator Sandra Courtney said: “We are very happy to welcome both ASICS and Up & Running back on board as official partners of the 2015 race. The Ealing Half Marathon is going from strength to strength and we are looking forward to welcoming a record number of runners to Ealing this September. A big thank you to ASICS and Up & Running for helping us to spread the #ealingfeeling.”
 
A total of 7,000 race places were available for 2015, with more than two-thirds now gone and the final places being snapped up quickly.

Entry costs are £34 for affiliated and £36 for unaffiliated runners which includes a medal and online e-goody bag for all finishers, plus entry into a draw to win a Mercedes bike. Runners can also sign up to run and raise money for the headline charity Alzheimer’s Society.
