Organisers say safety of runners, staff and volunteers paramount
The decision has been taken to cancel this year’s Ealing Half Marathon and Ealing Mini Mile. They were due to take place on Saturday, 26 September and Sunday 27 September.
In a statement the organisers said, “We are sure that this doesn’t come as a surprise to you, and we hope that you understand and support our decision to not go ahead with this year’s event. The safety of runners, staff, volunteers and our community is our primary priority, and due to the ongoing and unpredictable situation in regards to COVID-19 we have decided that there is no other option but to make this decision.”
Ealing Half Marathon is organised by EHM Legacy CIC for the benefit of the community and with any surplus ploughed back into local community projects.
All Ealing Half Marathon entries for 2020 will be automatically transferred to the 2021 event, which takes place on Sunday 26 September, 2021. The organisers say that registered runners have been contacted by email with further details about this. If you have not received an email, contact email@example.com.
They are offering refunds for Ealing Mini Mile entries, but the organisers are asking people to consider donating the Mini Mile entry fees to EHM Legacy CIC. Anyone wanting to request a Mini Mile refund should email firstname.lastname@example.org by July 13. It may take some time to process refunds. The Mini Mile races are now taking place on Saturday, 25 September 2021.
Set up as a legacy to London’s Olympic Games, this would have been the ninth anniversary race.
