Experience Downtown Reading's Premier Half Marathon, 5K, and 1-Mile Fitness Courses!

The Friends of Reading Hospital are excited to offer a one-of-a-kind running experience with the 2016 Reading Hospital Road Run. Participants will enjoy a beautiful scenic course in the city of Reading and Lower Alsace Township. Half marathon runners will traverse Mount Penn, sprint past the historic Pagoda and race to the finish line for cash prizes and glory!

This year's race will utilize instant result timing using the Jaguar disposable chip timing system and features high-tech wicking shirts with the option to purchase a premium long sleeve shirt (both available while supplies last). All half marathon participants will receive a finisher's medal.
