Reading Half Marathon

Frank Colman reports on a great VR turn out at the Reading Half on the 19th March:

“Brilliant day yesterday at Reading Half Marathon for Berkshire Vegan Runners! The atmosphere was vibrant throughout despite a chilly and blustery start. The crowds of supporters at various parts of the route were amazing, backed up by thumping disco music, live bands and a sensational drumming band under the bridge in the town. There were lots of “Go Vegan” and “Come on Vegan Runners” shouts. The Olympic style stadium finish at the Madejski rounded off a truly great and well-organised event. We had a pre-race meet up, a post-race meet up and a vegan burger meet up with local Reading vegans at the Oracle. Highly recommended for next year!”
