The start point is at Green Park with the first leg up to the university, through the town and over the Kennet before passing under Abbey Gate and heading out to Prospect Park. The grand finish will be at Madejski Stadium. There are a range of cheering points where supporters can also do their bit to encourage the race participants, being hosted by local charities. Several of these are recruiting for volunteers via RGneeds.me and you can find a list here
