There was plenty of time before the race for us to put most of the event marquees up. However, we had to wait until a protective trackway was installed in the stadium before we could set the tents up in there.
That meant that the team had to install those marquees late in the afternoon the day before the event and remove them immediately afterwards. However, we’re used to dealing with all sorts of space, weather, safety, and security challenges. A late finish is no match for our limber team!
A Sir, an MP, a dinosaur, a superhero and a flamingo walk into a tent…
Or should that be a pub? Runners in The Unleashed Performance Reading Half Marathon could get a free beer to celebrate their amazing achievement. This was thanks to another business from the local community, Phantom Brewing.
Other event partners included Green Park, Cancer Research UK, Hilton, Inchcape Reading BMW and Greatest Hits Radio.
After a forced hiatus, there was a real atmosphere of fun in the air. Quirky costumes lifted spirits and a few famous faces made an appearance, too. Matt Rodda, MP for Reading East, joined the thousands of runners who took part in the race. Sir John Madejski himself was at the finish line.
In April 2022, Reading Half Marathon will celebrate its 40th birthday and we hope to be part of this terrific event again.
