Perfect weather conditions and huge support along the route made this year's Ealing Half Marathon (EHM)one of the best yet.
After only four years the EHM has established itself in the running calendar, and the race on Sunday 27th September was the biggest yet with 4681 finishers plus 355 Ealing Mini Mile runners.
Run-Fast athlete Christopher Cheruiyot dominated the field and took the lead from the start, crossing the finish line with a gap of over five and a half minutes in a time of 1:05:41. Jack Parslow of Dacorum & Tring AC and Thomas Beedall were battling it out for second place with Parslow finishing in 1:11:21, seven seconds ahead of Beedell.
The women’s race was won by Run-Fast athlete Teresiah Omosa in 1:16:32. Runner up Alice Braham of Thames Hare & Hounds secured second place in 1:19:06, and Rosamund Ponder of West 4 Harriers claimed third place after crossing the finish line in 1:21:32.
New Zealand Paralympian athlete Tim Prendergast, who continues to inspire many by sharing his own experience of overcoming disability to succeed, was amongst the running crowd and finished in overall 22nd place in an excellent time of 1:16:59.
273 runners were raising money for headline charity Alzheimer’s Society, and over 220 Ealing Eagles took part in this year’s race.
The fastest runners in the Ealing Mini Mile, which covered a one-mile route around Lammas Park, were Maximilian Steel (6:10) and Millie Vadon (7:37) in the 6–11 years category. Luke Adar (5:30) and Feia Starkey (6:18) claimed first place in the 12-16 years category.
The prize giving was sponsored by Kantec with prizes supplied by ASICS, Up & Running and Ealing Half Marathon. The stunning winners’ trophies were provided by Burridge London, and each finisher received a unique Ealing Half Marathon 2015 memorabilia print by local artist Wayne Grace, alongside a medal and other goodies.
