Parkland run at Basildon Park

Put your running shoes on every Tuesday to join our volunteers on a run around the park and woodland trails.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Every Tuesday some of our volunteers will be leading a run along the trails at Basildon Park. The run will usually be between 8-10km and last about an hour, so we recommend this for runners with some ability only.

This is a great way to see the park in all it's beauty whilst keeping fit and being active.

What is Gift Aid?

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.

Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission
  • Standard Admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:

  Gift Aid Standard
Amount paid by visitor £11.00 £10.00
Tax refund from Government* £2.75 £0.00
Total received by the National Trust £13.75 £10.00

 

*Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

Please note...

Please note that family tickets apply for two adults and their children or grandchildren (17 or under). Under 5s go free.
