2018 Sage Reading Half Marathon


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

The 35th Reading Half Marathon takes over the town on Sunday 18th March 2018 and we'd love you to join us at the fastest half marathon in the UK!*

The course 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.

The race culminates in a finish 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.

*Half Marathon results researched between Autumn 2016 & Spring 2017 show that the Reading Half Marathon saw more runners crossing the finish line sub 70 and 80 minutes than any other UK road Half Marathon. Plus results listed on powerof10.org show that currently 14 of the 50 fastest Half Marathons times run by UK male athletes across the world were at the 2017 Vitality Reading Half Marathon.
