Get to run in a mass participation race with your colleagues or friends, raise money for good causes, enjoy special hospitality, have fun and get fit. Everyone wins!
The Hilton Reading Corporate Challenge race is designed to suit all abilities, with members of your team taking part in both the Half Marathon and the Green Park Challenge.
Hilton Reading Corporate Challenge
How Does it work?
Enter a team of between four and six people. A minimum of two and a maximum of three in your team must run the Half Marathon (adults only 17+) and a minimum of two, maximum of three must run in the Green Park Challenge.
Every team nominates a team captain who organises the initial entry online via the link below and payment of the entry fee. This must be done before either race closes (due to the popularity of the Green Park Challenge this is likely to be earlier than the Half Marathon) and please note details of all team members must be added before 1st March 2021.
First, second and third teams win a trophy. But everyone wins – we all try to raise money for charity, local businesses have great fun and get fitter at the same time.
What you'll receive in advance
Your Team Leader will receive wristbands for the whole team so you can access the Hilton Reading Corporate Challenge hospitality room in the Madejski Stadium Conference Centre.
ON THE DAY
Teams meet in the Windsor Lounge hospitality room in the Madejski Stadium Conference Centre before the race to receive your race bibs, technical T-shirt and race information. Drop your bag in the baggage area and then all you have to do is go to the start line, enter the correct zone and wait for the gun!
Following the race head back to the Hilton Reading Corporate Challenge Windsor Lounge hospitality room to enjoy a post-race meal, refreshments, relax and relive your race with friends and colleagues until it's time to take your well-deserved medal home.
The Green Park Challenge Race Begins 08.30am
A fun run which is estimated to be just under 3km and is open to all. From serious athletes wanting a shorter race, to complete beginners wanting to have fun, get fit and raise money for charity all at the same time. Chip timing will be used for all competitors, so everyone will get their position and race time.
The Half Marathon Race Begins 10.15am
13.1 miles taking you through the highlights of the centre of Reading where you will experience huge crowd support and through the beautiful grounds of the University campus.
Both races culminate in a finish rarely found outside an Olympic stadium with over 15,000 people cheering you into the Madejski Stadium and over the finish line.
