RaceNation Events has secured the future of this popular half marathon that was facing closure after a challenging pandemic

While lots of races are finally inviting runners back to the start line after the pandemic,  many events are still facing uncertain futures due to ongoing financial challenges over the past 18 months.

One of these is the Ealing Half Marathon. It’s West London’s biggest running event, and has been voted the UK’s favourite half marathon for three years in a row. It’s also a community affair, with profits from the race and its supporting events (the Ealing Mini Mile, Osterley Park 10K and the Ealing Mile) going straight into local community projects each year.

Despite this, the race was facing closure after this year’s event after a difficult pandemic. Luckily, RaceNation has stepped in to help safeguard its future. They’ve been working with a number of new races and events this year, hoping to preserve the future of the running industry.

“The Ealing Half has been a trusted stalwart in the racing calendar for years and we have always loved working with them,” says Will Golder, CEO of RaceNation. “We’re delighted to be expanding our portfolio with such a prestigious and well-regarded race series – we look forward to seeing all the runners cross the finish line!”

This year’s race will take place on 26th September. For more info, and updates on next year’s event, click here.
