Invitation to the Ealing 20 marathon training run – Sunday September 15th

Our neighbours in Ealing declare their ‘volunteer team have been at it again’ and issue this irresistible invitation to join them for a 20 mile training run along the river.  Cake, water, and ribbons will be provided.

Designed for those participating in Autumn marathons (or ultras!) this is a free training run and not an official race. It’s free but you must register in advance.  To register simply email eagles20@ealingeagles.com with the following details:

Estimated finish time.
Emergency contact number.

Further details:

With the summer league season coming to an end, thoughts turn toward autumn marathons. Those longer training runs can be lonely affairs if you’re short of a running buddy at this distance. But fear not…

Ealing Eagles are holding a 20-mile training run on the morning of Sunday 15 September – and we’d like to extend an invitation to neighbouring clubs to come along. It’s a great chance to share this important mileage; and share training notes and knowledge.

We’re offering:

–        FREE attendance;

–        Marshals at key points;

–        First-aiders;

–        4 water stops en-route;

–        Finishing line refreshments (yes, there’ll be cakes!);

–        A non-competitive and friendly atmosphere;

–        Did we mention the free drink and cakes?

The run commences at 8:30am; the route is from Kew Bridge to Hampton Court, crossing the Thames at Kingston Bridge. This is 10 miles; you then turn around and head back. Click here to explore: http://gmap-pedometer.com/?r=6028633

Registration and post-run refreshments will be in Kew Cricket club house.

In keeping with the non-competitive flavour of this run we will not be issuing runners with numbers, but will have a visible means of identification (ribbons for you to display on your shirt) to distinguish us.

Places are open to anyone at your club, but runners MUST register with us beforehand by emailing: eagles20@ealingeagles.com and providing your name, club affiliation, emergency contact number, and expected finishing time.

You will be asked to sign a medical disclaimer form when registering, so please arrive in good time. Registration takes place at Kew Cricket Club which is on Kew Green.

To get to Kew Green, the nearest rail station is Kew Bridge (exit and cross the bridge); bus routes 65 (Ealing Broadway to Kingston) and 391 (Fulham to Kingston) stop right by the Green. The nearest tube is Gunnersbury (District Line) from which you can take the 391 bus to Kew Green.

We look forward to having you join us – let’s all get those miles in together!
