Reading Half Marathon

Back again at the Mizuno Reading Half Marathon with a line up of over 16,000 runners. An inspiring event in a great location with superb organisation.

However the heavens opened and it rained constantly throughout the entire 3 hours we were playing and it was cold too, but what an amazing day. With our lead mestres over in Coburg, sorting our participation in the Coburg Samba Festival 2013, we had Jaz at the helm and had a blast. A small but perfectly formed band of 12 played, danced, jumped, screamed and laughed our way through the performance with hundreds of runners clapping and cheering as they went past.

We even managed a short snippet of footage on the local BBC South news and were interview by Debbie McGee live on BBC Radio Berkshire !
