THE medal design for the 2019 Sage Reading Half Marathon has been unveiled.

The much-loved half marathon returns on March 17 with more than 15,000 runners expected to cross the line.

Every year the race medal creates a huge amount of excitement for the runners, eager to wear their race bling with pride.

Judith Manson, race director, said: “We can’t wait to reward every runner with a medal to be proud of as they step across the stadium finish line in March.”

Comprising an impressive three-ring design and green ribbon, Sage, headline supporter, is delighted with this year’s medal.

Debbie Wall, vice president at Sage Foundation, added: “The three circles represent the three pillars that Sage Foundation support in our communities – military veterans, women and young people.

“All the work and fundraising we do helps members of our communities gain a good education, have the skills to be work ready and have the opportunity to be entrepreneurs.”
