Bournemouth Half Marathon 2022

Join #TeamOrange and take on this stunning half marathon for MDUK on Sunday 9 October 2022.

The Bournemouth Half Marathon starts at the spectacular and beautiful Hengistbury Head, with the first five miles of the route taking you along the cliff tops with 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 Eight 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’ll 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. Then take it all in, before you start your sprint finish through the much-anticipated finish line on Bournemouth Pier Approach.

When you sign up, we’ll send you your very own ‘stand-out-from-the-crowd’ #TeamOrange running vest to wear on the day. All we ask in return is that you pledge to raise £200 to help beat muscular dystrophy.

We’re here to support you every step of the way to help you reach your fundraising goals and can share fundraising hints and tips with you too!
