Everything you need to run a successful Readathon!

We’ve designed Readathon to be really easy to run, with everything you need in our fabulous bright orange kits (no photocopying needed!). Most schools run Readathon for two or three weeks, but we’ve had 24-hour Readathons and term-long Readathons – it’s completely flexible.

Low effort, high impact!
