Do something amazing by taking on the Basingstoke Half Marathon or 10k Run as part of #teamSMH!

Starting from War Memorial Park, the Basingstoke Half Marathon and 10k is a real highlight in the running calendar and has brought our whole community together. With closed roads and a friendly welcome it is a race with all the organisation and facilities of a big race, but with a real community atmosphere. You will also be able to take in fantastic views of some of Hampshire’s most picturesque landscapes and have a bird’s eye view of Basingstoke.

You may choose to run to remember a loved one, catch up socially with friends and family or use it as a team building day with your colleagues. Perfect for all abilities, charity runners, experienced runners, and those of you who are keen to take on your first 10K or half marathon are all welcome to take part. Whatever your reason for running, we would love you to represent SMH.

*Please note this event is run and organised by Destination Basingstoke.

Fundraising information

Please click below to download a copy of your Fundraising Pack which includes a copy of your sponsorship form and an ‘I’m running for…’ sign to print and wear on the day.

This year it will cost over £5.5 million to operate the Hospice and provide our services to our local community, with less than 20% funding from the North Hampshire Clinical Commissioning Group.  The remaining funds comes from the kind donations made by people like you. Therefore, we kindly ask all participants to try and collect a small amount of sponsorship to help us continue to provide our care for patients facing life limiting illness in the community. Here are how your contributions will help:

  • £35 enables a patient/family member to access 1 hour of specialist support from our Hospice at Home team.
  • £50 funds 5 child bereavement activity books to help a child struggling with the loss of their relative.
  • £110 would provide pain relieving medication to a patient for 8 days, enhancing their wellbeing and keeping them comfortable.
  • £240 funds a day of expert nursing care to support our patients with their physical and emotional needs.
