Could you walk, run, cycle, swim or even hop to help give children a brighter future? Join Race for Reading and you'll be helping children catch up on literacy skills lost during Covid and its associated lockdowns. 

All you need to do is commit to a mileage goal - either as an individual or in a team with family, friends or colleagues - and help us, collectively, to cover 25,000 miles in 80 days (the distance covered by legendary fictional character Phileas Fogg in his world circumnavigation).


Any sponsorship raised in the process will be gratefully received. For every £15 raised, one of our reading volunteers will be able to provide crucial face-to-face weekly reading support for a disadvantaged primary school child for a year, improving their literacy and life chances.

Pre-register now to get active and change children's lives.
We'll be in touch soon with more details!
