Course information

Please remember to bring your own water bottle already filled as there will be no bottled water provided at events. ScottishPower water refill stations will be available to use.

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.

Please arrive 30 to 45mins before your start time so that you are prepared and ready to go on time.

In 2022 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. 

Designated cycle parking - There are 15 cycle spaces located at the front of the Basildon Sports Village building.

Parking

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. 

If you require any further information on the accessibility of a Race for Life event, or wish to bring a carer/helper to accompany you, please contact our Supporter Hotline on 0300 123 0770 and press 1 when prompted (Opening hours are 8am - 6pm Monday to Friday) or email us at raceforlife@cancer.org.uk
