Reading Half Marathon 2024

The Reading Half Marathon is a hugely popular event in the running calendar. The course takes in much of the town where you’ll find huge support every step of the way, before entering a crescendo of noise for a stadium finish at the home of Reading F.C.

The Route

Starting in Green Park, the route wends its way around the park before heading towards the town where a loud welcome is guaranteed. The route also takes in the University of Reading, passes Prospect Park before making its way towards Colney Recreation Ground and the A33 where the stadium is tantalisingly close in the distance. It’s all worth it though for the roar as you enter the stadium with the finish line in sight.

If you already have your own place and would like to Run 4 Cancer, we would be delighted!  We can fully support you with a training plan and a high performance Run 4 Cancer running vest… perfect for both training in and also for race day!  Just fill in the contact form below and we’ll get in touch right away! Thank you.

Apply For Your Free Place

We have a number of free and subsidised places available. All we ask is that you raise a minimum of £250.00 sponsorship funds in support of Run 4 Cancer.  We set very low minimum sponsorship funds and fully understand that the cost of living crisis is impacting people’s ability to sponsor people.  To reserve your Run 4 Cancer place, simply click this link.

Run 4 Cancer - About Us

Set up by a team of running enthusiasts, all of whom have lost a family member or a friend to cancer, Run 4 Cancer is primarily a provider of days out and short-breaks for British families affected by cancer. We give families something to look forward to during the most difficult of times. We also make grants to UK based care institutions and support research into the positive effects of exercise (e.g. running) and how it can help with cancer prevention and recovery. Find out more about us here.
