The Bournemouth Marathon Festival boasts beautiful coastal views and the opportunity to run the Boscombe and Bournemouth piers, before a spectacular finish in Lower Gardens.
The marathon sets off from Kings Park, along the seafront and stunning cliff tops of Bournemouth, catching a glimpse of the famous Russell-Cotes Art Gallery Museum, before hitting the iconic Bournemouth Pier for the home stretch. Here you get the chance to run past Poole's natural harbour, the largest in Europe and are greeted by the crowds at the finish line in Lower Gardens.
The half marathon follows a similar route to the marathon, capturing Bournemouth's most iconic landmarks, this is one not to be missed.
We know that fundraising can be just as challenging as the event, but we’ll be here to support you every step of the way. When you sign up to run for us, you will receive a support pack with tips and advice to help you with your fundraising, allowing you to make a difference to people living with dementia.
To kick-start your fundraising in the meantime, why not set up a JustGiving page?
You can also print off a sponsorship form to share with friends and family.
If you have cheques that you need to send in to us, please use our paying in form and post to:
Not a runner? You can still do something incredible and make a difference to people affected by dementia.
We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to support our runners on the course. We'll kit you out with an Alzheimer's Society t-shirt and provide lots of cheer equipment so you can really make some noise.
With your help we aim to give our runners an amazing event day experience, boost them over the finish line, and set them on their way to raising even more money to change the lives of people affected by dementia. And we can guarantee you'll have a great time!
