Whether you’re on a health kick, you’re a seasoned runner or the British Heart Foundation is a cause close to your heart, Bournemouth Bay Run is a fantastic event welcoming people of all ages and levels of athleticism to join a fun run along our beautiful seafront.
Select your distance, from a chip-timed half marathon and 10k to the 5k or 1k Family Fun Run and register online for this rewarding and inspiring event with all proceeds fuelling the fight against heart disease.
You can’t help but feel emotional when hearing about the reasons why some people are taking part. From hastily-scribbled tributes to loved ones on running vests to those who have won the battle and fought their way back to health to tackle the distance themselves. it’s an inspirational occasion in the most beautiful setting.
With 2017 being the 35th anniversary of this popular event, the organisers have set a 1980s theme to mark the occasion – if you’re confident that a set of deely-boppers, bucket-loads of hairspray and a pair of legwarmers won’t affect your PB! All that Lycra and a fluorescent colour scheme certainly won’t look out of place here, whether you’re in costume or not!
Entry fees range from £4 for the 1k Family Fun Run (no minimum age) to £22 for the Half Marathon (age 17+)
