Hire your own box or suite

You've taken on the decision to run in the Vitality Reading Half Marathon and come 19th March 2017 all of your work will pay off as you cross one of the most amazing finish lines inside the glorious Madejski Stadium, with up to 15,000 people cheering you on.

You now have the opportunity to really make this event even more memorable by sharing it with friends and family in your very own private box or suite overlooking the finish line**.

A private box or suite gives you space to relax before and after the race, you can enjoy a range of hospitality on offer and of course you and your party will have a ringside seat** to watch your fellow runners cross the finish line and soak up the atmosphere.

There are a range of boxes and suites available – to suit every size and budget, with the smallest box catering for up to 10 individuals, whilst our biggest suite can comfortably hold up to 450 people.

Make your race day experience extra special and join us in the Madejski Stadium for a truly unforgettable day.
