Bournemouth, GB

The Bournemouth Marathon starts in Kings Park before making it’s way down onto the seafront. You continue to take in the beautiful coastal views as you hit mile 9 on the coastal marathon route. Standing mid way between Poole Harbour and Hurst Spit, Hengistbury Head forms the main division between Poole and Christchurch bays. You then turn west and at mile 14 you can see the famous Russell-Cotes Art Gallery & Museum which is situated on Bournemouth’s stunning cliff-top, over looking the sea. You then continue to run along the seafront, taking in the breathtaking Boscombe Pier, at mile 12 & 16. As you hit the iconic Bournemouth Pier for the second time, you know you’re on the home stretch. The Pier was first constructed in 1856. The Pier has undergone numerous transformations over the years, with the addition of the Bournemouth Pier Theatre in 1959. As you continue your run west towards Lower Gardens at mile 18, you then head towards Poole’s Natural Harbour which is the largest in Europe before taking in the last few miles along the stunning sea front and finishing in Lower Gardens.

Running a half marathon!

A fabulous weekend culminating in my first half marathon. In fact my first major run ever. Exhausting but exhilarating when I finally crossed the finish line.

A great sea-front course

A lovely course, including several miles along the sea front. It also included a run along both piers. Great atmosphere. Great crowd. The marshals were friendly, too.

2nd Marathon of 2016

This was my second marathon this year having completed London in 2016. I loved the course and although i found it difficult at times, I managed to get a personal best of 3hr 26min. Running along the coast was great, especially when you needed a distraction from the heat and aches. The crowds in Bournemouth are great and I would recommend going down to the events the day before to get yourself pumped up for Sunday's Marathon.
