You don't have to be a runner to enjoy Ealing's biggest event of the year. Last year, hundreds of volunteers got involved and had a great time making Ealing's Half Marathon such a wonderful success for the runners and spectators alike resulting in us winning Runner's World UK 1st place award for the race with the best atmosphere.

This year we'll be putting together an even bigger volunteer team, looking after the race village in Lammas Park, and out on the roads of Ealing guiding the runners and helping local residents. It's a fun & rewarding experience for all and we'd love you to get involved! You will need to be able to give between 4 to 6 hours on the day depending on where you are volunteering. The required start time for most volunteer areas will be 07:30am to allow for all the logistics on the day. 

As a thank you for creating such a great race we'll provide you with a free breakfast roll, staff t-shirt and memento medal of the day for you to keep plus a FREE race place for 2015*

This popular event was an instant success, and West London's largest new mass participation event:

  • 2013 event attracted approx. 5,600 sign ups for the main event. This year we have 6,500 runners plus the Ealing Mini Mile.

  • Raised over £300,000 for various charities and intend to increase this year on year.

  • Voted the Number One Half Marathon in 2014 the UK by The Running Awards.

  • Voted the Number One race for atmosphere in 2013 by Runner's World Magazine.

  • Voted in the Top Ten UK Half Marathons by Runner’s World Magazine in our inaugural year.

  • Highly rated in the running/fitness community – 96% of runners would do it again as rated on Runners World.
