Bournemouth Half Marathon
Sun 10th October 2021
Incredibly flat and fast routes hold the promise of PBs for those taking part in the Bournemouth Half Marathon, Supersonic 10K and 5K races and for our junior runners, get supercharged for the 2K and 1.5K races!
Starting at the spectacular and beautiful Hengistbury Head, The Bournemouth Half Marathon course takes in both Boscombe and Bournemouth piers along this beautiful coastal route. Taking place on the 10th October 2021, this is running as it should be!
The Bournemouth Half Marathon starts at the spectacular and beautiful Hengistbury Head, which forms the main division between Poole and Christchurch bays. The first 5 miles of the route makes its way along the cliff tops affording participants the very best views of the coastline before dropping down onto the seafront.
You continue to take in the beautiful coastal views as you run along the promenade with Boscombe Pier in sight. A short incline at Mile 8 brings you back up to the overcliff to enjoy a new view of Bournemouth Pier and Poole beyond.
Passing Russell Coates Museum on the way down to Pier Approach you’ll get a taste of the glorious finish line that awaits you, but not before once again enjoying the run out to the end of Boscombe Pier where you enjoy the feel of the wooden pier boards beneath you.
One final stretch on the promenade, alongside Bournemouth’s award winning blue flag beaches before you once again tread the boards of your second pier, Bournemouth Pier. Take it all in before you start your sprint finish through your much anticipated finish line on Bournemouth Pier Approach.
