Green Park saw roughly 30,000 people on the estate last Sunday (3 April). The sun made an appearance and added to the carnival atmosphere for those running either the Green Park Challenge or the Reading Half Marathon.
We were very proud to have hosted the start and first mile of both races here at Green Park. The Green Park Challenge was a 3km run for children and adults running around Green Park and straight into Madejski Stadium with the fastest time being just over 9 minutes! The Reading Half Marathon was completed in an amazing 1hour and 3 minutes by Robert Mbithi of Kenya for the men’s race and Jenny Nesbitt of Worcester being the female lead with 1 hour 12 minutes.
They were joined by our very own Green Park Team, made up of occupiers and the Green Park Management Team. Photos of the team and from across both races can be found on the Green Park Facebook page.
Well done to all who took part in this year’s Green Park Challenge and Reading Half Marathon on Sunday 3 April.
