Step 3

Getting your race pack – it gets real now. Whether you opted to have your race pack delivered to your home or you’ll be collecting it at the Race Village on Friday or Saturday, holding your race number in your hand is a big moment. That’s your number and it’s your ticket to the picturesque start line in Green Park.

Step 4

Finish line – that’s where your goal is and where you’ll smash it. Race Day is the coming together of all of your training and quite rightly, the finish line is a special place to arrive at. Take in the magnificent roar of the Madejski Stadium as you experience an Olympic style finish before your medal awaits.

The coming months are going to be exciting for us all. Take that extra step and join us for a wonderful Race Day in November. So grab your roadmap and run for an experience you’ll never forget!
