The organisers of the 2020 Reading Half Marathon and Green Park Challenge, Goldline Events, announced with sadness on 16 March 2020 the postponement of race day, due to take place Sunday 05 April.

“We are very aware that the coming Autumn is going to be a busy time for re-scheduled events, and so, today we confirm that the new date will be Sunday 01 November 2020.

“We have been working tirelessly with our partners and key stakeholders to confirm the new date and want to thank all involved for their continued support, positivity and solidarity. All runners who have entered the 2020 race will automatically be transferred to the new date but we ask that everyone monitors the official race channels for regular event updates. Entries will re-open soon at www.readinghalfmarathon.com

“We now enter a time of detailed planning for the November event, working in collaboration with our partner agencies and stakeholders. As with all members of the running community, the nation and the rest of the world, we will continue to monitor COVID-19 developments and UK Government guidance for the months ahead.

“Stay safe, enjoy your training but we do urge you to listen to the Government’s social distancing guidelines. Together we can get through this, we look forward to seeing you all at the start line in November.”
