On the weekend of 17th & 18th March, Halo Solutions was hugely excited to be working with Goldline Events at the Reading Marathon and trail our new Halo system.
Halo worked well on Saturday, we got some fantastic feedback from the team on the ground and were able to quickly streamline and improve their assessment process for checking site safety and getting the route ready for the runners.
The weekend saw unprecedented snowfall and treacherous conditions and it was amazing to see the professional team at Goldline try their best to keep the race alive for the runners who work so hard to get themselves fit and raise so much money for charity.
You could tell this was really personal for all the team and they tried everything to keep the event going, so they were truly upset when the weather never gave up and on Sunday morning it had to be cancelled.
We learned a lot from being side by side with this excellent team and seeing this event from their side of the fence. Their passion and professionalism were great to bare witness to and we look forward to working with them again in the future.
