John Fielding, a newcomer running his very first half marathon, took the Ealing Half title in a time of 01:08:35 after pulling away from runner up Elias Ahmed (Ealing, Southall & Middlesex AC) who finished in 01:08:53. Jonathan Poole (Serpentine RC) the returning champion, took third place in 01:11:04.

Alice Braham (Ealing Eagles RC) was the fastest in the women’s field and took the title in 01:18:23, ahead of Sarah Gerrie (Ealing Southall & Middlesex AC) who finished in 01:28:59. Kelly Clark came third after crossing the finish line in 01:29:03.

The single lap 13.1 mile course started and finished in Lammas Park and took in parts of Central Ealing, Montpelier, Pitshanger, West Ealing, Hanwell and St Stephens.

Sandra Courtney, Race Director, said, “The 10th year celebration of the Ealing Half Marathon has been a huge success, it’s so good to be able to celebrate the amazing milestone! We would like to congratulate everyone who took part, and thank all our runners, volunteers, team, sponsors, partners, charities and residents for their ongoing support. Ealing Half Marathon is a race for the benefit of the community, and we couldn’t do it without the support of everyone involved and all the runners signing up year after year. See you again next autumn!

“The 11th year race will be taking place on Sunday 24 September 2023 and entries open at 1pm on 26th September with places starting at just £29 for the first 200 entrants and then the event is turning back time to 2012 prices at just £32 and £34 for a limited time only so runners need to be quick to grab a place in West London's best half marathon at these knockdown prices. “
