Travel by Car
We recommend that competitors coming from the Farnborough direction park in the public Napier Gardens car park in North Camp. There is a small charge for this (70p for 3 hours, 90p for 4 hours). It should 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 the car park at the back of the Rugby Stadium as in previous years. (The Rushmoor parkrun car park, 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 its 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!
