Overseeing the health and safety of more than 12,000 runners.

More than 12,000 runners took on the Vitality Reading Half Marathon on April 3rd, 2016 and having been recently appointed as safety consultants to organisers Goldline Events, Symphotech oversaw health and safety along the 13.1 mile course.

Will Hodgson acted as our Silver Commander overseeing the course, which began in Reading’s Green Park and finished at the Madejski Stadium – home of Reading FC. His role involved tactical decision making, implementing the race plans and overseeing the movement of the participants and spectators around the course, opening roads as and when it was safe to do so.
