You may have noticed we have changed our name, it was mentioned (just a few times) that it was not clear where the race took place. Everything else remains the same, sponsors, organisers, race route and race schedule.
We are really sorry to say this event has been cancelled due to the Coronavirus outbreak. If you have not received an e-mail from us by the 20th March please contact us using the button at the bottom of this page. We have decided that due to the amount of events that are planning to move to the Autumn we will not re-schedule. Please look after yourself, your friends, family and loved ones, from a very sad Racesolutions team!
The Reading 10K is a great race for all runners, It’s a fast single lap 10K race suitable both club athletes looking for a new PB and newer runners looking for a flat, friendly, relaxed race with a generous cut off time . We also have Ali and his pace runner team on hand to help you reach your target time.
Our lovely lakeside event village is full of music, flags and entertainment, it’s an ideal family event with time to jog round with the kids before you run your own race, then picnic by the lake.
Our Mini Mile and 3K Mini Marathon races take place within the safe environment of Green Park. Around 1200 children take part in the two races supported by their friends, families and schools.
There are free t-shirts, great medals and automatic entry into the Berkshire Schools Challenge. *The suggested age range for the Mini Mile is 4 – 8 years and 9 – 14 years for the Mini Marathon. Parents can run free with their children but can also enter if they would like to receive the t-shirt and medal. The 3K race is also open to adults who might like to have a go at their first running race or would prefer a shorter distance than 10K.
The Green Park Schools Awards Evening takes place a couple of weeks after the races.
Awards are made to the top 3 girls and boys in the Mini Mile for age groups 4/5 5/6 & 7/8 and in the Mini Marathon for 9/10 11/12 & 13/14 there are also awards in each age group for schools with the best 3 runners from the school to score. In 2018 The Mayor of Reading, X Factors Danyl Johnson and Green Parks Rory Carson presented.
