Reading Half-Marathon Entries Closed

Entries have closed for this year's Reading Half-Marathon with more than 18,000 people signing up.

The Mizuno sponsored event on Sunday April 1 starts in Green Park, winds through Reading, before finishing at the Madejski Stadium.

The 13.1 mile race is in its 29th year and organisers have told us it's a favourite with beginners because it's flat and fast.

Beijing Olympic Bronze Medalist Tasha Danvers was at the launch of the race - and told Heart why it's such a great event to take part in.

She said: "Your whole family can get involved and young kids can get involved, and just generally to be in shape and have something to aspire to. It's always interesting to see how fast you can get round it."
