Race report: Mizuno Reading Half Marathon 2014 Green Park Challenge - March 2, 2014

Mizuno Reading Half Marathon 2014 Green Park Challenge - March 2, 2014

The Reading community was out in force to support the thousands of runners, from elites to families and fun runners, taking part in the Mizuno Reading Half Marathon on Sunday 2 March.

Just under 2,000 runners took to the 2.8km Green Park Challenge course, where the Blessed Hugh Faringdon and Reading Blue Coat School dominated the top five positions taking first, second, third and fourth between them. Chey Kemp, 14, from Reading, was crowned winner of the male Green Park Challenge with a time of 00:08:49 minutes. First place in the female category was awarded to Ellie Clark, 15, from Reading, crossing the line in 00:10:58 minutes.

The Green Park Schools Challenge was also a great success as runners from the same school combined results. Prizes were awarded based on the top three performing children from an individual school in these age categories, U7, U9, U11, U13, U15 and finally U17. There were both male and female categories and the top three children from the top three performing schools will all be awarded at a special presentation evening in a few weeks time. The top performing school in each age category was also awarded with a £100 cheque for their school.

Whether participating, supporting or just coming along to enjoy Green Park, we hope you all enjoyed the event as much as we enjoyed hosting it. We hope to see even more of you at next year’s event.”

Moira Logie, Regional Fundraiser from Sue Ryder said: “We’d like to thank all our runners for taking the time and dedication to not only train, but raise such a fantastic amount of money in the process. It was such an amazing day, thoroughly enjoyed by all!”
