Reading Half Marathon 2010

Thursday, March 4th, 2010

Once again Berkshire Freemasons are marshalling the Reading Half Marathon event, Sunday 21st March, in support of the charity CLIC Sargent. A number of brethren have already volunteered, including several members of Ashley Hill. W Bro Brian Cook is rounding the troops, so any Masons wishing to help should get in touch with him.

The race starts in Green Park, 250m from the race site at Madejski Stadium. The route will be exactly the same as in 2009. For more information visit the Reading Half Marathon website at
