In 2022, 26 amazing people stepped up to run the

40th Reading Half Marathon for us


Between them, including Gift Aid and match funding from one of their employers, Invesco, they raised a phenomenal £17,245.05.


Could you join our 2024 team?

Times are tough and we could really do with all the support we can get at the moment. If you would be up for running for Reading Half Marathon for us in 2024, we'd love to hear from you

You'll get: 

  • free entry 
  • a breathable recycled PET running vest
  • running coaching and encouragement
  • mutual support through WhatsApp and Facebook groups

We'd just ask you to aim to raise at least £50.

Or if a half marathon is too much for you, how about the Green Park Challenge 3km fun run? Last year seven students from Leighton Park School raised £455 for us between them.   

We'll send you full instructions for setting up your fundraising page and will help to promote it for you.
