About the Event

With a phenomenal finish in Reading FC's stadium and 15,000 people cheering you over the finish line, you'll complete this challenge feeling like a champ. The route takes in the highlights of Reading (home of Make-A-Wish UK) and the University's beautiful grounds along the way. 

Reading might be known for its historic 'three B's' (Beer, Bulbs, and Biscuits), but Reading Half Marathon is definitely recognised for its three Fs... Fast, Friendly, and Fantastic. Why not run Reading's race for Make-A-Wish UK and create lasting memories for a child living with critical illness.

Why run for us in the Reading Half Marathon?
