The total amount raised by runners in the Ealing Half Marathon last month was over £155,000.

This brings the total raised by this and previous races to £2.5million.

The official charities for the 2021 race included Alzheimer’s Society, Cancer Research UK, Macmillan Cancer Support and Meadow House Hospice.

This will be a welcome boost for the causes supported because the last eighteen months has seen a big dip in the amount raised for charities.

The organisers said, “A big thank you to every single runner who raised worthy funds for the charities with their half marathon efforts, you are all amazing! “

Cancer Research UK & Macmillan Cancer Support have been announced as Platinum Charities for 2022, whilst Meadow House Hospice returns as a Gold Charity.

The 10th anniversary edition of the event will be taking place on Sunday 25 September 2022 and entries are OPEN. The 13.1 mile course will start 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.
