The Bournemouth Half Marathon Course

The Bournemouth half marathon route follows the full marathon route, starting 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 6 – 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 around mile 8, you run along the breathtaking Boscombe Pier. 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. You then run past Lower Gardens at mile 10 before the final home stretch along the stunning coastal seafront and a grandstand finish.
