Croudace Homes Festival 5k in Basingstoke

Sunday, April 28, 2024

28 April

Thanks to everyone who took part, and supported, the Croudace Festival 5k 2023 – and now we can announce that the next Croudace Festival 5k will take place on Sunday, April 28, 2024.

The Festival 5k is a fab, fun run around Basingstoke town centre, suitable for all abilities and ages from 13.

Taking you through the shops, the business area and local parks, the run starts and finishes in the buzz of Festival Place, and there is always a fun, friendly atmosphere. The race will start at 9.30 am on April 28.

So, if you are a seasoned runner, or a beginner, why not give it a go. Perhaps raise some money for your favourite charity at the same time?

Countdown to Starters Orders


As we have done in the last couple of years, for 2024 we will be doing 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.
