Reading Half Marathon – Sharon Burfield reports back from her old stomping ground and a new PB…

So this was my first time running Reading half…  Having grown up in Reading, it was great to return to my old stomping ground and the streets I once knew well.  It brought back a lot of good memories of shopping trips and nights out!  I was very impressed with the organisation here, particularly with […]
