The Basildon route starts and finishes on the football pitches behind Basildon Sporting Village and is fully contained within Gloucester Park. The route is on grass and paths and is mostly flat with a few hilly sections. The 3k follows the first 1.5k of the 5k route before looping round back to the finish. Dogs are welcome at this event. There will be no water available on the 3k route, other than at the finish, so please bring your own bottle if you feel you will need it.
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 and when needed.
The start line is on the football pitches behind the Sporting Village.
In 2021 we will be providing some car parking at Gloucester Park, to reduce congestion in the local area. This is limited so we ask that participants please car share where possible. Alternatively, Gloucester Park is a short walk from the Town Centre so the Town Centre car parks are also an option. We ask that participants refrain from parking in the Retail Park please to avoid congestion in this area.
The car parking, event site and the route is majority on grass. However, the route does include some of the paved paths in Gloucester Park. The route is relatively flat but there are a few sections of uneven ground and inclines. We advise that this event is suitable for wheelchair users with assistance, but want to make participants aware that the ground can be quite uneven especially near the lake and if the weather is poor the area can get very muddy.
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 around 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.
