Reading Half celebrates Women's Sport Week

by Press Release
Monday 19th June 2017
It’s Women’s Sport Week from 19th to 25th June. The aim is to encourage as many women as possible to tackle a new sporting challenge. Reading Half is supporting this with a unique competition.
In celebration of Women’s Sport Week 2017, organisers of the Reading Half Marathon are offering ten lucky women the chance to win upgraded VIP tickets to next year’s event. 
Women’s Sport Week (WSW) is a national awareness week providing an opportunity for everybody to get involved with playing, delivering, working in, volunteering or watching sport to celebrate, raise awareness and increase the profile of women’s sport across the UK. Taking part in Women’s Sport Week produces various benefits for females, such as creating more opportunities to reach their full potential through sport and enabling them to develop crucial life skills.  
Aligning itself with the goals and objectives of Women’s Sport Week, Reading Half Marathon aims to encourage as many women as possible to tackle a new challenge by taking part in its annual half marathon, now in its 35th year. The event hopes to build on its numbers from last year, which saw an impressive 6,031 women cross the finish line. For anyone who is passionate about empowering women and girls through sport, this is certainly an opportunity to be involved with. 
Reading Half Marathon’s unique prize includes access to a VIP box at Reading’s famous Madejski Stadium, overlooking the spectacular finish line. Any woman can enter between the 19th and 25th June and will be entered automatically into the prize draw.
