We did it!

Race for Reading 2021 has now ended and registrations are closed. Thank you to everyone who took part. We are thrilled to announce that not only did we collectively circle the globe, but the final total (and counting) is over 34,000 miles in 80 days!

Special thanks go to our sponsors Tritax and our challenge champion Levison Wood.

The money raised through this challenge will provide weekly one to one reading support sessions with a Schoolreaders volunteer to over 2,500 children and this figure is still rising. You are still able to donate to participants pages. Every £15 donated will support another child- you really can change their life stories!

A thank you message from Schoolreaders ambassador and Race for Reading champion Levison Wood.
