August 2016 - Basingstoke Half Marathon Countdown

THE countdown is on for runners to enter the sixth annual Basingstoke Half Marathon.

There are just weeks to go to the 13.1-mile race that is set to take place on Sunday, October 2nd 2016.

Once again, we at Phillips Solicitors, are proud to be the headline sponsors for the popular race, which starts at War Memorial Park.

The route goes through the beautiful countryside of Cliddesden, Ellisfield and Farleigh Wallop and is rated as one of the top 10 half-marathons in the country.

We are entering a team of 50 runners as part of Team Phillips and hope to raise as much money as we can for our charity of the year, the Ark Cancer Centre Charity

To help do this we’ve set up a dedicated fundraising page which can be found at

The Ark Cancer Centre Charity is on a mission to raise £5million to go towards a much needed cancer treatment centre that will help and support people in the Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (HHFT) area.

If you would like to run as a member of Team Phillips, please get in touch with Richard Garfield at Phillips Solicitors by emailing

Phillips Solicitors are joined by Asset Advantage, Tech Data and Ridgeway Hampshire BMW & MINI as key sponsors of the race.

Details of the race course and how to enter are available on the web site at

For those who wish to raise money off-line, you can send your cheques directly to the Ark Cancer Centre Charity. This will be match-funded by the Greenham Common Trust. Please make cheques payable to Greenham Common Trust. More information about the match-funding scheme can be found by visiting
