The Reading Half Marathon not only takes in the highlights of the centre of Reading where you will experience huge crowd support but also still passes through the beautiful grounds of the University campus. Thanks to numerous changes to the course over the duration of their fifteenth year organisational span it has resulted in a fast route and an amazing finish in the magnificent Madejski Stadium. This culmination to the race is rarely found outside an Olympic stadium with over 15,000 people cheering you into the stadium and over the finish line.
So whether you run for fun, run to stay fit, run for a club, or run professionally the Reading Half Marathon has the organisational capability, friendliness and reputation that are all second to none.
Charity places for the Reading Half Marathon 2023 are at a reduced rate of only £15 and we just ask that you kindly pledge to raise a minimum of £300, which we will be with you every step of the way to help you achieve and smash!

“In May 2020 after suffering with breathing issues and being unable to walk, eat and sit up. I was diagnosed with a rare auto-immune disease, Polymyositis – which attacks your muscles. I found being in hospital incredibly hard but felt very privileged and humbled with the incredible care I received by truly amazing people, who did so much to make my stay as easy as possible, especially during a global pandemic. Without their help and encouragement, I would not have got my life back and walked out of the hospital 2 months later. To say thank you to the staff who took care of me, I took part in both Run Frimley 2021 & 2022 and ran to raise money for the trust” – Caroline
