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 section of the 5k behind Basildon Sporting Village, before splitting off to follow the lake path passing behind the main event site. This route then picks up the final 1.5k of the 5k route around the smaller lake at the far end of Gloucester Park before looping round back to the finish area. Dogs are welcome at this event. There will be no water available on the 3k route, 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 but 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.
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.
