Preventing Homelessness in Reading

Running for Launchpad

We’re the official Charity Partner of the Green Park Royal Berkshire 10K in 2017 and we have a team of runners taking part in the Reading Half Marathon. Are you interested in taking part or helping marshall the events?

Green Park Royal Berkshire 10K, Sunday 21 May 2017

We are lucky enough to be the official charity partner of the Green Park Royal Berkshire Reading 10K and have 20 places to fill. We’re asking you to raise a minimum of just £75.

We’ll also need a team of 20 race marshalls – it’s a great way to be involved without having to run!

The Green Park Reading 10K is a flat, closed road loop route, offering new runners an easy introduction into a running event. It also has excellent PB potential for experienced runners looking to produce a fast time.

Reading Half Marathon, Sunday 19 March 2017

The Reading Half Marathon is the town’s biggest athletic event, and it’s also an excellent fundraising opportunity. Every year we’re lucky enough to have supporters who choose to run and fundraise for Launchpad, raising on average £300 each!

In 2016 we had 11 runners, 20 marshalls and our own cheering point on Kendrick Road (mile six). It was a beautiful and sunny dry day, thoroughly enjoyed by all.
