RunReading Half Marathon was first run in September 2020 as a Covid-19 safe event, following the success of the concept and amazing feedback we have now added a 50K ultra Run to the schedule. This is particularly aimed at those new to ultra, there are no cut off times, there is support around the route. Regular ultra runners are very welcome and the flat profile may well offer the opportunity of a quick time. If you have ever felt you would like to try an ultra but find the idea a little daunting, don’t worry this is the race for you!

The starts are staggered to space runners out but you can opt to start with friends. The stagger will be over the course of an hour with roughly 10 people per minute leaving our race village start line. The event has a very different feel to normal races, you will find it very relaxed and fellow runners very supportive.

There are support top up stations and check points along the route. The route is way-marked and has marshals at key points. All runners are chipped and results are published shortly after the run. Medical support is provided around the route. Parking is next to the race village so it’s easy to leave everything in the car. If Covid-19 is still an issue at the time of the run we already have the safety measures in place to ensure we can go ahead. All runners receive one of our lovely bespoke RunReading medals.
