Bournemouth Half Marathon, Supersonic 10km & 5km 2024

The Bournemouth Half Marathon replaces the former Bournemouth Marathon which was discontinued as a result of the pandemic after a successful seven year term. In addition, there are two other races in the Supersonic Series – 5km which takes place on the Saturday, and a 10km which, along with the Half Marathon, takes place on the Sunday. The course still incorporates the best elements of the old full marathon course and is described by the organisers as “Running as it should be!”

The Route

With beautiful coastal views, the race starts at the spectacular Hengistbury Head (near Christchurch) and then makes its way along the cliff tops before dropping down on to the seafront. A brief climb just after the half-way point takes you back on to the overcliff path and runners will be presented with stunning views of Bournemouth Pier and Poole in the distance. The course takes runners along both Boscombe and Bournemouth piers with the finish line on Bournemouth Pier Approach.
