Traditional London brewer Fuller, Smith and Turner PLC has been announced as major sponsor for the sixth Ealing Half Marathon on Sunday 24 September, 2017. Ealing Half was voted UK's Best Half Marathon at The Running Awards in 2014, 2015 and 2016 and recently received the silver award in the same category.
Make Mine A Pint Of Ealing Half
As part of the sponsorship package, Fuller’s will assist in the marketing and promotion of the event and will have a number of staff and customers taking part on the day. Local Fuller’s pubs will offer runner competitions and organised training runs prior to race day as well as hosting events on the day itself.
Ealing Half is expected to attract over 7,000 runners from over 25 countries on the Sunday, keen to experience the famous #EalingFeeling together with 1,500 children in the Ealing Mini Mile on the Saturday.
Fuller's Inns will stock a special guest beer in the build-up to the race. The 'Ealing Half' (also available in pints!) will no doubt refresh runners during their training and after their 13.1 mile journey around Central Ealing, Montpelier, Pitshanger, West Ealing, Hanwell, St Stephens and Lammas Park.
“Having partners that share our values and community focus is of paramount importance to us,” said Sandra Courtney, race director. “Fuller’s is a great example of an organisation that recognises the enormous contribution the event has brought to West London and it’s great to have them on board. We are also delighted to announce that in the build-up to the event there will be a special edition ‘Ealing Half’ guest beer on sale in selected pubs in London,” added Sandra. “It’s fair to say that one or two of our runners have been known to frequent Fuller’s pubs and I know the attraction of a pint of Ealing Half should prove extremely popular!”.
Jonathon Swaine, managing director of Fuller’s Inns, added, “We are delighted to return as an event partner for the Ealing Half Marathon. Having been involved since the first event in 2012 it’s amazing to see how far the event has grown.”
