West London's ultramarathon - the Queen of the Suburbs Ultra is now LIVE. ENTER today and claim your place on the start line.
Stunning Trail 25k and Ultra 50k run/walk route through the parks, greenways and blueways of Ealing - the 'Queen of the Suburbs'.
The London Borough of Ealing is known as the ‘Queen of the Suburbs’ – an area that was easily reached from Central London on public transport but with the feeling of being in or close to the countryside.
The Queen of the Suburbs Ultra is owned and created by EHM Legacy CIC (Community Interest Company) and is our lockdown legacy. Back in 2020 and 2021 when in-person events were not possible, we set the challenge of running in each one of Ealing's stunning parks and green spaces - the Queen of the Suburbs Challenge, a virtual event.
Some participants decided to run to and between many of the parks, clocking up significant distances. The idea of an ultramarathon entirely within the Borough of Ealing was born. In 2024 you can be the first to take on Queen of the Suburbs Ultra - Saturday 23 March 2024 Find out more.

Whether you are planning to run, walk or run/walk, preparing for an ultra-marathon requires planning and training. We will help you prepare, point you in the right direction for support and advice, and provide some great blogs to help you learn more about the ultra experience.
Every step you make, you are closer to becoming an ultramarathoner!
Ultramarathons are typically in remote, hard to reach places, which can often lead to expensive weekends, with costs of travel, accommodation and food.
However, by hosting our event in the Capital, we are hoping to provide an inclusive and accessible ultramarathon. The Queen of the Suburbs Ultra will be easy to get to and home from for many. And easy for your supporters to reach multiple parts of the course.
