The Basingstoke route has a fantastic atmosphere as the course criss-crosses around the many park tracks, meaning you can always see other participants around you. Travelling along grass and country paths; this course is mostly flat but with mixed terrain and a short incline near the start.
Please bring your own reusable water bottle, should you wish to carry water with you during the event, as there will only be water available at the finish line.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we’ll be operating a staggered start time in 2021 to ensure your safety on event day. Additional start times may become available as/when needed.
The start and finish area is on the fields in between the rugby club pitches and astroturf pitches.
Please use public transport where possible. Buses such as 3B, 4 and 57 can be used to access Down Grange Sports Complex.
There will be free car parking at the venue, through the main Down Grange Sports Complex entrance (off Pack Lane). Please follow signs for event parking on the day and be aware that parking in the Basingstoke Rugby Club car park will not be permitted.
Unfortunately this event is not deemed suitable for wheelchair users. The course is all on grass which can become boggy due to poor weather, in some sections of the course there are narrow paths. There is also a steep hill which takes you from the rugby pitches to the rest of the land.
For any spectators with wheelchairs who wish to access the start and finish area, there is blue badge parking about 150m from the event site but please be aware that the route between the two is entirely on grass, which may be boggy in wet weather.
Inviting your friends and family to support you on the day is a great idea, they can share in the joy with you as you cross the finish line and ring the bell. They can also help you with those important things, like holding your belongings whilst you walk, jog or run round the course!
Please note, whilst we hope we can open our events to families and friends supporting on the day, this may not be possible due to government guidelines around COVID-19. We will update on this nearer the time.
