MIZUNO Reading Half Marathon The 2012 Course The race starts in Green Park, 250m from the race site at Madejski Stadium. The route will be exactly the same as in 2011. Starting at GreenPark , A33 to Bennet Road , Basingstoke Road to Hartland Road, Whitley Wood Road to Shinfield Road and follow the old route to the Reading University loop. 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 takes 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 (second climb) 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 heads 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; just before the stadium the route takes the customary right into GreenPark but only as far as the first roundabout and then returns back towards the Stadium and the finish. Following the GreenPark loop the race makes its way up and into the stadium finishing in front of the stands.

lesley whiley runs Reading Half for MS
Hi, thanks for visiting my page. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
Once again I am running this event for the MS Centre in the Oxford Road. They do a fantastic job of helping those who have MS and also their families. Visit their website or call in on an open day and see for yourself what they do and where all the money I hope to raise will go directly. I love to run and will also be cycling, doing gym work and a bit of swimming to help me reach my goal of completing the race in a decent time. (long gone are the days of a PB!)
So please help me to reach my target!
