What do I get as part of #TeamMacmillan?

Whichever way you choose to join, as part of Team Macmillan, we’ll make sure you have:

  • Our bumper fundraising pack, access to our online training zone and loads of fundraising tips and tricks.
  • Your free Team Macmillan technical running vest or t-shirt, plus iron on letters to customise your kit.
  • Regular e-newsletters to keep you up to date with Reading Half Marathon news and activities.
  • And of course... the loudest and most supportive cheerers on the course!

    Most importantly we will provide you with a reason to put in those months of training and fundraising, because you know that your efforts are going towards improving the lives of people living with cancer in the UK today.

    Why be part of the green team?

    We want to use this amazing event to make a difference. We know cancer can affect everything; your body, your relationships, your money, everything. But we are here to help people live life, no matter what. We give them the support they need to hold on to who they are and what’s important.

    But we can’t do it without you. Join Team Macmillan for the Reading Marathon and we will treat you like the superhero you are from the moment you sign up through to when you cross the finish line. Life with cancer is still a life. Join Team Macmillan and help people live it.

    The minimum age for this event is 17 years old.
