The Ealing Mini Mile takes place on Saturday 29th September 2018 and entries to this popular event are now open.
Taking place the day before the award-winning Ealing Half Marathon, the 2018 Ealing Mini Mile is set to inspire hundreds of young runners to get active and be part of a big weekend of sport in the West London borough.
The Mini Mile is open to young runners aged 6-16 years and a total of 1,500 places are available. The race always welcomes a good number of runners from local athletics clubs, as well as children of those already signed up to the half marathon race. The organisers also hope to attract plenty of young runners who have never taken part in a running event before.
The 2018 Mini Mile will for the first time include a Family Mile, which is a brilliant chance for children aged 5 or under to take part in their own race along with an adult. A total of 400 places are available for the Family Mile, allowing for 200 children and 200 adults.
This means that, overall, the 2018 event will be open to the largest number of youngsters yet and promises to be a hugely exciting day for all involved.
For young runners of any age and ability, the Mini Mile and the Family Mile are a perfect opportunity to experience a large sporting event and the thrill of crossing the finish line. The course covers a 1-mile route around Ealing’s Lammas Park and the youngsters always receive fantastic support as they make their way round and receive their medals.
The Family Mile takes place at midday on Saturday 29th September and the Ealing Mini Mile takes place from 1pm, in waves according to age. All children in the Mini Mile and the Family Mile will receive a t-shirt, medal, chip timing and water on finishing. Adults taking part in the Family Mile will receive a medal.
Places are expected to sell fast for the event, as they have in previous years, and anyone wishing to take part is encouraged to sign up as soon as possible after registration opens.
Local independent Catholic girls’ school St Augustine’s Priory has been confirmed for the second consecutive year as the main sponsor for the 2018 Ealing Mini Mile.
