The Round Reading Ultra Marathon (RRUM) takes place on Saturday 29th July 2023.  A friendly, welcoming event with a superb multi-terrain course that circumnavigates the town of Reading.


The 50km course will include a variety of terrain, including flat river and canal towpaths, undulating woodland trails, country lanes and paths through Reading's many urban green spaces.

With 5 x feed stations along the route, you don't need to worry about re-filling water bottles, etc.  We even offer a delivery service to the feed stations - we'll take your own nutrition out to the second half of the course feed stations for you, if you prefer to use your own tried and tested food.


A perfect intro to ultra-running with a fully signed course and ample feed stations, an opportunity to challenge yourself to a great 50km run time, to run as part of a 2-man team, or simply to just enjoy a fantastic scenic run around Reading!
