Route information
Both distances start and finish on the east side of the pier and head along the Bournemouth shoreline up to Boscombe.
The low tide provides a good hard packed sand to run on . There are a number of groynes serving as man-made obstacles you will have to negotiate. Most are no more than 2 to 3 feet high and can be jumped or stepped over.
