Reading Half Marathon 2021

Amazing support, lots of bands and stadium finish!


This will be Clo's 10th time running the Reading Half and it would be great to get #RedThunder to join her to celebrate such dedication to one race.

I have never run a race with the crowd support of Reading Half! The cheering alongside the many different bands create an incredible race atmosphere.

Even after running lots of other races I return for the Reading buzz. It would be great to see more goodgymers there!

The Reading Half Marathon takes you through Reading city centre where you will experience huge crowd support, steel drumming bands echoing under the bridges and it also passes through the beautiful grounds of the University campus. The race culminates in the Madjeski stadium with over 15,000 people cheering you into the stadium and over the finish line.

All of this support make it excellent for those who want to chase a Personal Record, complete their first ever half or to fit into a marathon training plan.
