As one of the largest in the country, the Vitality Reading Half Marathon offers a fantastically well supported and PB friendly road race for elites and beginners alike. Starting in the beautiful Green Park before exploring Reading University and the Town Centre, the race culminates in a spectacular finish in the iconic Madejski Stadium in front of 15,000 supporters and spectators. Enjoyed by the local community as well as the runners, the unique atmosphere of the Vitality Reading Half Marathon is an unmissable experience.

James Thorne is running for Macmillan
I'm running in the 2015 Reading Half Marathon for Macmillan Cancer Support. I have chosen Macmillan as I was looking for a cancer charity to support in 2015. My mother-in-law Janice died on 19th January 2015 after a prolonged fight with cancer and my father has just been given the "all clear" following treatment for prostate cancer. Macmillan's support helps many thousands of those living with cancer: patients, carers, family.
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.
