Father-and-son team head Ealing Sports Relief run
A FATHER and son team are organising the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile in Ealing on Sunday, March 23.
This is the fourth time Paul and Ben Farmer have organised the charity mile that raises life-changing money for African and British people.
St. Benedict’s School pupil Ben, 15, said: “This year, the Ealing Mile is its biggest yet. There will be plenty of activities on the day, so don’t forget to rope in your mates, family, and colleagues too!”
Organised with the support of Ealing, Southall and Middlesex AC, it has 800 places up for grabs.
The Ealing Mile is part of the annual national Sports Relief event, which brings people together for fun activities to raise life-changing cash.
Ealing runners will begin their one-, three- or six-mile race at midday, 1pm, 2pm and 3pm from the Hanwell Bunny Park.
On the way round, they will see Hanwell’s historic Brent Lodge Park, be entertained by performance groups and receive refreshments from Hanwell scouts.
Ben said Ealing residents should feel encouraged to don their headbands, get training and show the rest of the country what Ealing can do.
Entry fees for the Ealing Mile are £6 for adults, £3 for children under 16 and £15 for a family of two adults and two children.
