AFTER its cancellation last year, the 2021 Ealing Half Marathon is awaited with anticipation by runners, volunteers and residents alike. 

It starts at 9am on Sunday, September 26, while the sold-out Ealing Mini Mile will take place from noon on Saturday, September 25.

The Ealing Half was set up as a legacy to London’s Olympic Games and public entries close this Wednesday (15) at 11.45pm. Anyone wishing to secure a public place should enter now

From Thursday (16) until September 22, runners will still be able to register for a charity place. Charity places are available with Alzheimer’s Society, Cancer Research UK, Macmillan Cancer Support and Meadow House Hospice. 

The 13.1 mile course starts in Lammas Park and will be run in a single lap, taking in parts of Central Ealing, Montpelier, Pitshanger, West Ealing, Hanwell and St Stephens before returning to Lammas Park via Uxbridge Road. 

Organisers are encouraging residents to familiarise themselves with the information published in the Around Ealing magazine which contains all the details about the route, road closures and bus diversions.

Around Ealing is delivered to every home address and many businesses in the borough, with copies also available in libraries, leisure centres, town halls and other public places. 

An online version is available at (see page 36-37).

All the resident information can be found on the race website at where the route map as well as the estimated road closure and opening times can be downloaded. 

The roads which the event will pass through will be closed to traffic, and there will be a rolling road closure in operation.

The organisers have said where possible the road will be re-opened 30 minutes after the last runner has passed by. 

Sandra Courtney, Race Director, said: “We thank everyone for their understanding and their continued support of the event.”
