Welcome to Bournemouth

The 2016 Bournemouth Marathon Festival takes place on Saturday 1st & Sunday 2nd October. Stunning sea views, fresh crisp clean air and the very best of Bournemouth and Poole is on show as the South Coast is home to an international marathon. This is the perfect natural environment for “running as it should be”. Be a part of it!

The Bournemouth Marathon Festival brings many distances together in one unique festival of running. The course is fast and picturesque, making it a must-do for anyone looking to set a PB. With 6 races to choose from there is something for all abilities, so if you don’t feel up to running a full marathon, then why not enter the half marathon, supersonic 10k or supernova 5k? There are also junior races for the kids, so why not get the whole family involved!
