Bournemouth Half Marathon

When: 7 October 2018
Where: Bournemouth
About: The Bournemouth half marathon course follows the full marathon route, taking in both Boscombe and Bournemouth piers along this coastal route. This is running as it should be!
Starting in Kings Park, you will make your way down onto the seafront and take in the beautiful coastal views as you hit mile 6 – standing mid way between Poole Harbour and Hurst Spit, Hengistbury Head forming the main division between Poole and Christchurch bays. You then turn west and run along the breathtaking Boscombe Pier.
The Pier was first constructed in 1856 and has undergone numerous transformations over the years, with the addition of the Bournemouth Pier Theatre in 1959. You then run past Lower Gardens before the final home stretch along the stunning coastal seafront and a grandstand finish.
To experience the lovely views of the piers and coastal route, register for your place today!
