The organisers of the Ealing Half Marathon are giving reassurances to runners hoping to take part this year that the event will definitely be going ahead other than in the unlikely event that new pandemic restrictions are put in place next month.

With many community organised events having to be cancelled due to the after effects of Covid-19 and resulting financial pressures, there was some concern that the run could be under threat this year. This would have been particularly hard to take as it is the tenth anniversary of the first ever Ealing Half which was set up as an Olympic legacy event and a big celebration of this milestone is planned.

West London’s only fully closed-road half marathon will take place on Sunday 25 September starting in Lammas Park. Up to 7,000 places are available for participants and it is still possible to sign up.

The organisers say that 2022 was planned as the bounce back year but pressure across the whole industry due to rising costs, along with organisational and logistical implications has meant many events around the UK have been forced to cancel. The Ealing event was called off in 2020.

However, thanks to securing a partnership with RaceNation Events at the end of 2021, Ealing Half Marathon says that it can now 100% guarantee their 2022 event will take place, subject to any Government or safety advice.

Event Director Sandra Courtney said, “We can’t wait to welcome all our runners to the 10th Anniversary of the Ealing Half Marathon! There are 10 years’ worth of hard work and joy of running to celebrate here and we intend to do just that. Thank you to everyone who has supported us by already signing up and to those who will register in the remaining few days before registration closes.

“This is a special moment, not only for the event, but also for our amazing charity partners who raise vital funds for amazing causes through the event. Our local community can also once again take pride in hosting West London’s biggest running event.”

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.
