The Ealing Half Marathon returns to West London’s Lammas Park on Sunday 24th September 2017 for its 6th anniversary race. Set up as a legacy to London’s Olympic Games, the Ealing Half is a much loved event that brings the community together and attracts runners from all over the UK and abroad to experience the #EalingFeeling.
For the first time, the Mini Mile will take place the day before the Ealing Half Marathon, on Saturday 23rd September. This follows huge demand from young runners aged 6-16 wanting to be part of this popular sporting event, all of whom are delighted to see 1500 Mini Mile places in 2017 compared to 400 in 2016.
The 2016 race was the event’s most successful year to date and saw the leafy streets of West London filled with thousands of runners and spectators. It is now a firm fixture in the autumn running calendar and a big favourite among the running community, having been voted the UK’s best half marathon for the last three years by runners at The Running Awards.
The Ealing Half Marathon is a UKA measured course on closed roads around West London. The 13.1-mile single lap course takes runners through Central Ealing, Montpelier, Pitshanger, West Ealing, Hanwell and St Stephens before crossing the finish line in Lammas Park.

The Ealing Half Marathon attracts an international running field but has its roots firmly in the local community and sees a lot of support from local businesses, residents and runners. The race is a Community Interest Company (CIC), which exists to benefit the community rather than private shareholders. All money raised by the race is invested straight back into campaigns and activities within the local community, such as projects to tackle childhood obesity and setting up running clubs at schools and for adults.
