RSE Club Report – Guy Fawkes and Madejski!

Reading Half Marathon

Following a 2 year break in races. the Reading half marathon returned to the streets attracting thousands of runners. The route takes runners on a tour of central Reading and boasts incredible crowd support. The race ends on the track at Reading’s Madjeski stadium for an incredible grandstand finish.

Reading half marathon have currently only released provisional times. Here’s a sneak peak of the results:

  • Mark Garrett – 1:25:54
  • Elliot Gardiner – 1:55:24 (A 3 min PB!)
  • Alan Powderhill – 1:56:17
  • Paul Robertson – 1:57:05

Quite a flat course with only a few inclines and an epic finish line in the Madejski stadium! Awesome atmosphere at the Biggest race I’ve done so far, loved all the live music especially the live bands and the choir! The only problem was the live music speeding our pace up every time we ran past so hard to keep slowing down once it was out of earshot! 😂
