Basingstoke 10K Run - Sunday 1st October 2023
The Basingstoke 10k runs in parallel with the established Basingstoke Half Marathon.
The course is a traffic-free out and back course that shares much of its course with the half marathon – but with less hills – with a gentle climb for the first 5k followed by 5k downhill!

Countdown to Starters Orders
The Basingstoke Half Marathon and 10k is a real highlight in the running calendar and we have been proud of the way it has brought our whole community together in a fabulous festival atmosphere. With superb scenery, closed roads and a friendly welcome it is a race with all the organisation and facilities of a big race, but the atmosphere of a community festival.
Keep an eye on our Facebook for news about future events.
The course for the Basingstoke 10k is a scenic out-and-back course to the village of Cliddesden, following the same closed roads as the half marathon.
Entry for the 2023 race will open in the new year.
The 10k race starts from War Memorial Park with the half marathon and follows the route of the half marathon along closed roads to the village of Cliddesden.
Then there is a hill out of the village for about three quarters of a mile before the turn point just before the ‘Farleigh Wallop’ sign, where you retrace your steps downhill back to the village and follow the same route to the finish in War Memorial Park.
The race starts at 11.00am at the same time and place as the half marathon.
Overall there is about 300 feet of elevation with the same in descent. Click on the map above to see the detailed route.
If you decide to run the route ahead of the race please remember that the roads will be open, and the B4036 in particular is very busy. If you do so it is entirely at your own risk, the route is open to all traffic and due care is required, you will not be participating in any event organised by Destination Basingstoke Ltd. The road will be closed on race day.
