We’ve made some exciting changes to the 2015 course and can’t wait to hear the runners’ feedback,” says Nick Pearson, Sweatshop’s race director.

“Just a few weeks before April’s London Marathon, it’s an ideal warm up race for seasoned runners, or even those beginning their running journey. Reading is known for its incredible crowd support, both out on the course from the people of Reading and the surrounding area, and in the Madejski Stadium you’ll experience a roaring lap to the finish line!”
