Ealing Eagles was founded as a "social running club" in 2009, and I joined in May 2011 after meeting Kieran Santry and a few others (there weren't many Eagles at that point) on a Monday night run in Gunnersbury Park. Ten years later the club had grown to a membership of more than 1000, some of whom had launched the local parkrun and the Ealing Half Marathon, and Eagles has become a unique local social, sporting and volunteering network with a delightful cast of characters and friends, many of whom are introduced in the video of the calypso Fly with the Eagles.
