The Festival 5 is a fab, fun run around Basingstoke town centre, suitable for all abilities  and ages from 13. It takes you  through the shops, the business area and the parks starting and finishing in the buzz of Festival Place. There is always a fun, friendly atmosphere. 

This year we decided to try and do our bit to make the race more sustainable.  We have teamed up with Trees not Tees and so instead of each participant receiving a t shirt, a tree will be planted. This is part of a UK sustainable reforestation project and the environmental benefit of planting a tree is huge.

You will be sent a certificate after the race with a picture of your tree.

RESULTS from 2022 

RESULTS from the 2021 race.


Although covid rules are no longer required we still want to keep you safe and reduce the chance of transmission, so in 2022 we did a rolling start to reduce congestion at the start so results were be based on chip times only. 


This is a great town based route giving you a flavour of all the different parts of Basingstoke’s town centre starting and finishing in the buzz of Festival Square.
