If you're desperate to run this year, there are other ways to join in. General places have sold out, but you can still take part by running for charity.

With just over a weej until the race, runners can still register to complete the half marathon for one of its three headline charities: Alzheimer's Society, Cancer Research UK and CLIC Sargent.

Kevin Walker, the race director, said: "We are delighted that the Ealing Half Marathon has sold out its public places for its fifth anniversary race.

"Running for one of our official charities is an extremely rewarding way for last-minute entrants to get involved in what has become a key event in the London running calendar.

"We have three fantastic headline charities for whom events such as ours can make a huge difference. For many people this is a great way to give something back whilst supporting a worthy cause."

To enter and run for one of the three headline charities, head to the Ealing Half Marathon website and click on your preferred charity.

Charity place applications close at noon on Friday September 16.
