Travel by Public Transport
The race start and finish is approximately 2.5 miles from Aldershot Railway Station and 1.5 miles from North Camp Railway Station. There is no connecting bus service from North Camp Station to Queen’s Avenue in Aldershot but the No. 1 route Stagecoach Goldline bus service runs from Aldershot Railway Station every 10 minutes. There is a stop in Queen’s Avenue, a short walk from the start.
The No. 1 route bus service also connects Farnborough Main Railway Station.
Travel on Foot
The Basingstoke canal tow path runs from Woking to Queens Avenue and also from Fleet/ Basingstoke in the other direction. The race start and finish is about a 30 minute walk from Aldershot town centre along Hospital Hill and then Queens Avenue.
Travel by Car
We suggest that competitors coming from the Farnborough direction park in the public Napier Gardens car park in North Camp. The charges are very reasonable – 70p for 3 hours, 90p for 4 hours. It may be much quicker to leave after the race if parked here. From this car park it is only a 1km walk (or warmup jog) to the rugby stadium. See the car parking page for more information.
OR until it fills up (!) you can use car park no. 6 at the back of the Rugby Stadium as in previous years. (The Rushmoor parkrun car park, with 300 spaces). To reach this turn left into Princes’ Avenue at the traffic lights on Queen’s Avenue. Ignore the car park immediately on your right, and follow the road round to the left and to it’s end, turning left just before the barracks. The race car park is on your left after 300m (signposted ‘car park 6’). Please do not park in any of the other car parks in the military area.
Important: Visit our car parking page for more info including how to leave the car park!
The 10k course is the same as in 2019. Find out more by visiting our dedicated course page.
Numbers will be given out in advance at pre-registration and on the day during registration. You will not receive a race pack in the post.
Medals are awarded to all finishers at the end of the race, and water is available at the finish.
