The new medal for the 2018 Sage Reading Half Marathon has been unveiled.

The race returns on Sunday 18th March 2018 with over 15,000 runners expected to cross the line and wear with pride, their shiny, new and hugely-deserved green ribbon medal.

One of the largest and fastest half marathons in the UK, nearly 15,000 registered runners took part in 2017, from first timers to Britain’s elite. The 2018 half marathon route promises to be as impressive as ever, taking in the highlights of Reading town centre. A world renowned course, huge crowd support, musical entertainment, beautiful University grounds and a field of seasoned athletes inspire a momentous finish inside Madejski Stadium, the home of Reading FC.

Judith Manson, Race Director of the Sage Reading Half Marathon, comments: “We take great pride in designing our race medals. Runners put their heart and soul into training for our event and so we want to reward them with a medal to be proud of, as they step across the finish line in March.”

It was announced, this week, that Sage, the market leader in cloud business management solutions, has become the main sponsor of the Reading Half Marathon from 2018. This partnership is another step forward for Sage’s philanthropic commitment through Sage Foundation, which empowers its customers, partners – and more than 2,000 colleagues in the UK – to get active in their local communities and fundraise for local causes.
