Whether you're a half marathon novice or an accomplished competitor, the Reading Half Marathon is worthy of a place in your calendar. 

Starting in the stunning parkland of Green Park, this year the race will take you through the beautiful grounds of the University campus before you head through the crowd packed streets of Reading Town Centre. The final straight takes you into the magnificent Madejski Stadium where you'll experience a finish like no other.

Who can take part

Half Marathon participants will need to be aged 17 years or over on race day. There is no upper age limit for the race.

Costs and fundraising targets

Entry is £40 (£38 for UKA Affiliated running club members) and, for a limited time only, there are also VIP entry places available for £60.

Places for this event are managed directly through the event organisers, and as such, there is no minimum fundraising commitment to take part. 

We rely on community fundraisers like you to continue our valuable work with bereaved families across Berkshire, and so we'd like to support your fundraising as much as we can.

You can now create a personalised online giving page right here on our website, which is a great platform for encouraging people to donate. We also have lots of free fundraising tools available for you to download or alternatively, you can order a Fundraising Toolkit below. This includes a printed copy of our fundraising toolkit, together with a selection of fundraising merchandise such as pens, balloons, badges etc. to help you raise as much money as you can for Daisy's Dream. 

This year we are also really pleased to be able to offer Daisy's Dream running vests and t-shirts for you to train and race in. We have four sizes available, and they can be purchased using the form below.

How to book

Places need to be booked directly through the Reading Half Marathon website. Entries are capped at 19,500 for this event, so please enter sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment.

We'd love to know that you are taking part for Daisy's Dream. Drop us an email once you've booked your place and we'll add you to our team.
