Event summary

There's nothing better than taking part in a coastal run on a fresh Autumn morning. The course provides a few challenging hills but, for the most part, it's about the scenery, which includes a run along Bournemouth and Bosworth piers. Run in this festival to earn your medal, t-shirt and goody bag.

Route description

The Bournemouth Marathon course runs through the neighbourhoods and coastal roads of the city, also taking in the boardwalk, and both Bournemouth and Bosworth piers. Competitors can expect a couple of small hills, with the most challenging to be found at Mile 9 and Mile 17/18 - this is a great course for those looking for a little more of a challenge. Athletes finish up their run heading to the Natural Harbour, before ending in Lower Gardens
