Join Reading Half Marathon

The first ever Reading Half Marathon was organised and run in 1983, when the start and finish venue was Reading University at White Knights Park. There were 5,000 runners and it was won by a 21 year old local University student, Mark Curzons in a time of 67.45.

Course Highlights

Starting in the stunning parkland of Green Park this year the race will take you through Green Park on a loop before crossing the A33 onto Bennet Road. Experience what Green Park has to offer with fresh legs as you see the park in all its glory. In previous years runners have completed a loop of Green Park in the final stage of the 13.1mile course when they are on their last legs and all eyes are on the finish line! From Bennet Road the route moves onto Basingstoke Road and Hartland Road, where another change in the route occurs. Runners will cross the roundabout, missing Northumberland Avenue and part of Whitley Wood Road, eliminating one of the dreaded inclines so early on in the course. From Whitley Wood Road you go onto Shinfield Road and into the ground of the University of Reading. Turning right out of the University the route continues along Christchurch Road to Kendrick Road and down into the town centre via London Road, London Street and Mill Lane. A left turn takes the course over the Kennet and past The Oracle complex, then right into Minster Street and right into Kings Road as far as Abbey Square where it goes left and passes under Abbey Gate to the Forbury Gardens (half way). From Abbey Street the route loops round the old Town Hall and into Friar Street, left into West Street and right onto the Oxford Road as far as Russell Street and then right into the Tilehurst Road. The route follows the Tilehurst Road to Lienbenrood Road and Prospect Park before turning left into Bath Road and heading back towards the town before turning right into Coley Ave and then left into Berkley Ave. Another right into Rose Kiln Lane sees the course onto the A33 dual carriageway, it then heads for over a mile towards the Madejski Stadium where the finish line is in sight, making your way up to the Stadium to finish in front of a rapturous reception from hundreds of supporters in the stands.
