Sage Reading Half Marathon entries reopen by popular demand

happy finishers

Calling runners of Reading! Entries for this year’s Sage Reading Half Marathon have reopened – don’t miss out, the remaining race spots are available for a limited time only! Sunday 18 March sees a field of over 15,000 runners lace up for the world renowned course. 

Taking in the highlights of the town centre, the runners will tick off 13.1 miles of non-stop cheering spectators, pumping music and an awe inspiring finish in Reading FC’s Madejski Stadium.

Proud to be crowned one of the fastest half marathons in the UK, this year’s Sage Reading Half has attracted a strong elite field including Olympians Andy Vernon (handicap -6.6) and Scott Overall (handicap -4.7). Will you chase down Britain’s finest? If you’ve broken 70min (men) or 80min (women) this year for a half marathon now’s your chance to apply for your elite free entry – how better to spend your Sunday than rubbing shoulders with our finest Olympians.

Signed up for this year’s London Marathon and looking for your prep race? The Sage Reading Half Marathon is just five weeks prior to the London Marathon so it’s the perfect event to test your legs and practice that marathon pace ahead of the big 26.2 in April.


Judith Manson, Race Director says: “We can’t wait to welcome thousands of runners to the start line in March. Whether it’s your first mass participation running event or your final few weeks of preparation ahead of the London Marathon, we want to be that platform for personal bests and huge high fives at the finish line! Registration has now reopened, be sure to snap up your race spot today. This world renowned, spectator filled, stadium finish is for you!”
