Our next event
The annual Launchpad Pancake Race is an eggstraordinary event that has seen local businesses don fancy dress and flip pancakes down Broad Street every Shrove Tuesday for over 20 years. In 2020, the event raised a huge £6,500 for Launchpad! Join us in 2021 for more fun!
Join Team Launchpad in April for Reading’s iconic half marathon which takes in the highlights of the centre of Reading where you will experience huge crowd support, and passes through the beautiful grounds of the University campus.
In April take on a 50km, 100km or 200km cycle ride where all routes traverse through the Chilterns, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
Join Team Launchpad for a flat 10km race route which embraces Reading's waterways for much of the distance, offering a wonderful, multi-surfaced course that takes in rural, modern and historical areas of the town and surrounding countryside. It’s a friendly atmosphere for beginners, yet a fast course for those who want to try for a 10km PB!
Join Team Launchpad in June with friends, family and colleagues for a fun packed day on a beautiful stretch of the Thames in Berkshire.
