Reading coming together for the half marathon since 1983
The first ever Reading Half Marathon was organised and run in 1983. The start and finish venue was Reading University at White Knights Park. (near Yellow Cars offices!)
It’s time for the Reading Half Marathon again this Sunday March the 18th. There is always a great atmosphere in Reading as the town comes together to support the people that have been training hard to take part. Some of the runners take part to raise money for charity. The costumes are a delight to see! Others are marathon runners who have set themselves goals.
Road closures for Reading Half Marathon
If you are planning on going to watch the runners please be aware that some roads will be closed. With 15,000 runners taking part and thousands coming to cheer them on. The road closures are understandable! The closures will be from 7am until 3pm. The exact timing is hard to specify as the roads are reopened when the majority of the runners have gone through them. If you are taking part give yourself plenty of time to get to the marathon in time! Call us on 0118 9666555 to book your Reading taxi to Reading Marathon.[table “11” not found /]
