The Ealing Half Marathon is a 13.1-mile single lap course on traffic-free roads, which takes runners through parts of Central Ealing, Montpelier, Pitshanger, West Ealing, Hanwell and St Stephens, starting and finishing in Lammas Park.

The annual race is one of only three fully road-closed half marathons in London, and was voted best half marathon in the UK in 2014, 2015 and 2016.

Sandra Courtney, Ealing Half Marathon race director, said: "We are delighted to launch the 2017 Ealing Half Marathon. This will be the sixth edition of a race that is much loved by athletes from near and far, many of whom return year after year to enjoy the fantastic atmosphere and warm welcome they know they will receive in Ealing.

"We are looking forward to welcoming runners of all ages and abilities to our event next September, including of course a strong field of elites and plenty of people running to raise money for charity."

Until Saturday December 31 early bird entries cost £36 for affiliated athletes and £38 for unaffiliated runners. To enter between January 1 and April 30 will cost £38/£40, and to enter between May 1 and July 31 will cost £40/£42.

The organisers are expecting the race to sell out by the end of July.
