Aldershot Little Troopers 10K

Aldershot Military Stadium, Queen's Ave, Aldershot GU11 2JL

The inaugural Aldershot Little Troopers 10K will be held in Aldershot on 28th April 2024. A BRAND NEW running event for Aldershot in 2024, the race is organised by Raceways Events CIC in support of the military childrens charity Little Troopers.

Little Troopers is a military children’s charity, founded in 2011 by Louise Fetigan, who was a serving member of the British military with her own young family. They provide the resources to support for all children with one (or both) parents serving in the British military. Come and celebrate the Month of the Military Child with us in April, and help to raise funding and awareness for Little Troopers!

The very first Aldershot Little Troopers 10K will be on a fast, flat and flowing multi-terrain route, with the majority of the race on roads and tarmac footpaths, and a short section along the Basingstoke Canal towpath.

Starting at the Aldershot Military Stadium,the route will start with a loop past the Garrsion Sports Centre and Physical Training Corps, before a tour of Queens Parade and a short section along the Basingstoke Canal Towpath. Looping around Aldershot Garrison, past the Military Museum on Queens Avenue, and back to where we started with a sprint to the finish in front of the main grandstand!

The race will be officially measured, licenced and insured by England Athletics and run under UKA rules, which will attract elite athletes, age-group warriors, community charity fun runners and everyone in between.

Runners will have the option to enter the race for free by committing to fundraising £100 for Little Troopers, and a portion of the profits from the race will be donated directly to the charity to help fund the continued support of military children and families.

We offer finishers medals and OPTIONAL t shirts for all runners, in order to try and do our small part to reduce waste going to landfill. 

Chip timing, post-race snacks and the chance to purchase race photography all come as standard from Raceways and afterwards why not stay and enjoy what the town has to offer from its many lovely cafes and pubs?

Our charity partners Little Troopers will be hosting a 1KM Children's Fun Run which starts and ends next to the adult finish line and all children receive a medal and certificate, so the whole family can enjoy the fun!
