On Sunday 22nd March, our director Nick, chair of trustees Mary and volunteer Ben will be running the Vitality Reading half marathon. Starting in Green Park, they will make their way up to the university, around the town centre, and back down to a grand finish in the Madjeski stadium, after 13.1 miles. Here's the route map.

13.1 miles is a pretty long way to run. They will have to train for weeks and weeks to prepare for the race. This sounds like awfully hard work to me. So why are they doing it?
