Thank you to everyone who ran or helped at the Reading Half Marathon!

Thank you very much to all of our runners and volunteers who took part in this years Reading Half Marathon.  You are all truly amazing!

We were delighted that our Patron Sir John Madejski agreed to officially start the race. Sir John also found time to join us in the official charities tent for a photograph and chat with our team before the race.

Keep your eyes open for coverage on BBC South and in the Reading Chronicle and Reading Evening Post this week. 

Third place in the wheelchair race was taken by able-bodied Olympic athlete and TV presenter Iwan Thomas who took part for a Channel 4 show about paralympic athletes. He finished in 84.51 minutes.  This will be broadcast in July.

It was a perfect day for the event, and we look forward to announcing how much has been raised when we receive all of the sponsorship money in :0)
