Festival 5k

Croudace Festival 5k – Sunday 12th May 2019

This annual fab 5k race around Basingstoke town centre starts in Festival Place and with the first 1k around the shopping centre it is a bit unusual. You then take a turn around the Top of the Town, Basing View and Eastrop Park before returning to the shopping centre to be back in time for the shops to open!

With restaurants open for drinks and snacks for runners and supporters, and plenty of places to watch the race, it’s a great start to a Sunday.

Whether you are a beginner, ready for your first proper race, a speed machine, or just want to set yourself a new challenge, you will be welcome – race starts at 9.30am. Enter now!

The race was sponsored by Croudace Homes – and supported by Festival Place  in 2019.
