Just a few days left to vote for @EalingHalf at the 'Oscars' for running, voting closes 13th April! 
Why do we win? 
We like to believe it's because we are unique in our approach. We are a small independent company of just three people based in a community centre. We are local runners who started a running event to do some good. Our aim is simply to organise and manage a fully road closed mass participation race to raise a surplus which is ploughed back into community projects.

Our event now brings over 30,000+ spectators out on the streets each year to cheer thousands of runners across 13.1 miles with a feel good factor that is tangible. We have the support of the whole community behind us rather than being a corporate event and we hope to remain that way for many years.

We are also hugely honoured to have also been shortlisted at the BT Sports Industry Awards 2016 for our community work against giants such as Coca Cola and Everton FC.

An official not-for-profit Community Interest Company we are more than one race once a year. We are here all year round.
