This is your chance to reach your own personal best running through Reading and the stunning university grounds, cheered on by thousands of keen spectators. It doesn’t matter if you are an avid runner, if you have the passion, drive and want to show your support for Thrive then we would love to have you as part of our team.

Our charity places are a discounted cost of £25 and we then ask that you raise a minimum of £275. We'll help you with your fundraising and provide you with a Thrive running vest!

Our Learning and Technology Officer Bex Watson-Stubbs celebrated her first year at Thrive by running the 2019 Reading Half Marathon raising a fantastic £630 of valuable funds along the way.

Bex told us, “knowing that every penny I had raised would help support the clients I have come to know, to ensure that our provision is open to those who could really be benefiting from horticultural therapy, that made every step of the half marathon worth it.

Even when the hills loomed and my legs hurt I knew I was doing something for a really special charity, and that made the high of completing it even sweeter.”

We were also supported by a group from one of our partners, Chiltern Seeds. Sally, Heather, Nina, Luke and Alex were certainly training hard, at home and in their lunch breaks during their busiest time to ensure they were race ready.

Their hard work paid off when they handed Thrive a generous £450 donation as fruits of their labour - which was gratefully received. Well done to the team and thank you for choosing Thrive!
