Judith Manson, Race Director of the Sage Reading Half Marathon, comments: “We know how excited our runners are about their race bling and so every year our team put in a huge amount of effort to create the perfect design. Not only to represent the history of our event, but also the runner’s efforts and the core values of our valued partners. We can’t wait to reward every runner with a medal to be proud of, as they step across the stadium finish line in March.”

Comprising an impressive three-ring design and green ribbon, Sage, headline sponsor, is delighted with this year’s medal, as Debbie Wall, Vice President Sage Foundation confirms: “The three circles represent the three pillars that Sage Foundation support in our communities – Military Veterans, Women and Young People. All the work and fundraising we do helps members of our communities gain a good education, have the skills to be work ready and have the opportunity to be entrepreneurs. The Sage Reading Half Marathon is part of the Sage Foundation $1M Challenge and is one of the biggest fundraisers we participate in each year.”
