Course information

The Basingstoke 3k route takes in all the fields and tracks around Down Grange Sports Complex. Travelling along grass and country paths; this course is mostly flat but with mixed terrain and a small incline near the start. The 3k route is much the same as the 5k route, but with a diversion on course so look out for our 3k signage.

Meeting point

The start line is on Down Grange Sports Complex, on the football pitch field on the left as you enter the sports complex.

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.

Please arrive no earlier than 15 minutes before your start time.

Unfortunately this event is not deemed suitable for wheelchair or pushchair users. The course is all on grass which can become boggy in poor weather and in some sections of the course there are narrow paths which are not suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs. There is also a steep hill which takes you from the rugby pitches to the rest of the land.

Supporter / spectator access

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.

We will be giving away bottled water at the finish line. But due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and our plans to reduce single use plastics at our events we encourage participants to bring their own water or hydration fluids on the day.
