Virtual Ealing Half and Fielding Marathon
Ealing Half Marathon
With current government rules this years Ealing Half Marathon is unable to take place in the same way as it normally does, however the organisers are still running the event in a virtual format. We always have lots of our families taking part and sharing their photos for our Fielding Sporting Stars page and it would be great if we could get a good Fielding turnout again this year. This is what the organisers are saying:
Ealing Half Marathon has TWO virtual challenges for you to take part in this September and they are open to everyone, whether you signed up to run Ealing Half Marathon this year or not. There are also no age restrictions, so children can take part.
Queen of the Suburbs Challenge – run, jog or walk in 13 designated Ealing parks. You have the whole of September to complete the challenge. After completion, you’ll receive our Queen of the Suburbs medal.
13.1 Challenge – this challenge can be done anywhere in the world! If you run, jog or walk 13.1 miles between Monday 21 and Sunday 27 September 2020 you’ll receive our 13.1 Challenge medal.
Or take on BOTH challenges and SAVE ££. It's just £22 plus a processing fee of £1.16 and you'll receive both medals that fit together to form a cool ‘double medal’. All information can be found on our website: www.ealinghalfmarathon.com
All the challenges include your medal in the cost.
Our own Fielding Marathon will be taking place in a different format this year so that we can continue to keep children safe in class bubbles. Unfortunately, this does mean that the Monday and Wednesday morning runs for families before school are no longer able to happen as well as the lunchtime runs for pupils.
We still want everyone to get involved in the Fielding Marathon though so miles can be ran outside of school this year in your family bubbles. Simply pick a mile route of your choosing which is convenient and safe for you and run with your family. Marathon cards will be handed to class teachers this week for children to take home, just mark off the miles as you run them like you normally do. Each mile must be signed off and dated by a parent Let your class teacher know when you hit the 6 and 13 mile checkpoints and again when you finish and they will collect your sticker, wristband and medals for you.
Let us know how you get on and good luck.
