After a challenging year for the Mass Participation Events Industry we were incredibly grateful to welcome runners, joggers and walkers back to Endure24 in 2021.
Throughout year Threshold Sports has incorporated a number of measures to reduce the risk of spread of COVID-19 amongst participants, crew and spectators across the entire event portfolio. As we launch Endure24 2022, we wanted to let you know that we will be continuing to assess whether social distancing measures will be required on events taking place next summer. At this stage, it is clearly too early to tell what will be required next year, but we will continue to keep all participants informed as we build up to the events.
We are offering a COVID-19 refund policy on all Endure24 places for 2022. Full details of which are available in the terms and conditions on our website.
The Reading event takes place in Wasing Park, set within the beautiful Berkshire countryside amongst 33 acres including a Manor House, walled Gardens and lakes. The 8km route ensures you’ll cover all the stunning areas of this unique venue.
Included in your entry fee is access to the 24 hour, 5 mile trail route with a half-way water station and lots of encouragement and support along the way! Access to our Basecamp for overnight camping is included in your entry fee, where there will be food concessions, entertainment and yoga/stretch classes* (*additional cost).

8km loop - A varied and exciting trail with stunning scenery!
You don’t need to be worried about getting bored or needing to keep your mind busy on this trail!
Setting off over that start line with hundreds of like-minded adventurous thrill seekers, one of the first landmarks you’ll come across is the ancient 15th century Church of St Nicholas. Top Endure24 Fan? Potential future wedding venue?
As you meander along the course you’ll soon be heading in to Wasing Wood. Once out of the weird and wonderful woods why not reward yourself with a cold refreshing beveragino whilst taking in the panoramic views of Paices Wood lake that will make you soon forget the smidge of a hill that is, the ‘Heartbreak Hill’.
Dust off those tutu’s in your dressing up cupboards. You’re about to indulge in the fantastical Fairy Forest before reaching the end of the 8km loop. Was it a dream? Was it real?
And this is only a proportion of what you’ll experience at Endure24 Reading! You’ll have to come and see for yourself what we mean…

There is no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing. There is nowhere this rings truer than England so you need to be prepared for anything from hot sun to torrential rain. It can also get very cold out on the course at night so bring layers and warm clothing.
