Join #TeamARUK for this coastal half marathon!

The Bournemouth Half Marathon is known for its clifftop views and scenic beach route.


The course starts at the spectacular Hengistbury Head between Poole and Christchurch Bays, taking you up along the clifftops and back down along the seafront. The route then goes slightly back up again to the over cliff, allowing stunning views of Bournemouth and beyond, before shortly running on the Boscombe Pier. Finally, the route ends on the historic and beautiful Bournemouth Pier Approach, passing the well-known Bournemouth Pier Theatre.

You will be celebrated on your achievements with a sweat-wicking finisher’s t-shirt, finisher’s medal, and distance keyring.
