Thinking about running a marathon? Pick one with stunning sea views, crisp clean air and a beautiful beachfront location.

Soak up Bournemouth Marathon's incredible atmosphere and breath-taking sea views.

The marathon starts in Kings Park before making its way down onto the seafront. Beautiful coastal views await you from mile nine to the finish.

The Bournemouth Marathon route makes the most of its setting. Expect to run along piers, including the iconic Bournemouth pier, and past beach huts on the seafront. You’ll also run west towards Poole's Natural Harbour – which is the largest in Europe.

You’ll cross the finish line in Bournemouth’s Lower Gardens.

Want to celebrate in a fitting fashion? How about fish and chips by the sea?

Finishers receive: 

  • a finisher’s T-shirt
  • accurate chip timing
  • a great finisher’s medal
  • a race recovery pack
  • a keyring.
