Reading Half Marathon, a local favourite, is a fast, flat race perfect for beginners and seasoned professionals alike.

Following on from a year without events, Reading Half 2021 is shaping up to be a big one.

Due to the continued issues around the covid pandemic, the event has been pushed back to the secondary date arranged by the organiser and will now take place on the 7th of November 2021.

This popular race has existed since 1983, and since then it's been built up, making it all about the runner and creating a fabulous experience. Not only does the race take in the centre of Reading, where you will experience huge crowd support but also passes through the beautiful grounds of the University campus, where the event started and finished in its first year.

The race now culminates in a finish rarely found outside an Olympic stadium with over 15,000 people cheering you into the Madejski Stadium and over the finish line. So whether you run for fun, run to stay fit, run for a club or professionally, this is a race that is perfect for you.

Fundraising Target: £145
