Take part in this running festival and fight for every childhood

At the Bournemouth Running Festival on 5-6 October, you can choose to take part in either the full marathon, half-marathon, supersonic 10k or the supernova 5k. 

You'll run alongside a beautiful picturesque coast line and the Boscombe and Bournemouth piers. So get your friends and family involved, choose your distance and join us at this amazing event. 

Why take part?

  • Receive world class training tips and tailored support from our training partners.
  • Your own NSPCC running vest with iron on letters.
  • VIP treatment at our post-race marquee with food and drink.
  • Lots of whoops and cheers from our cheer points en route.
  • You’ll be doing something amazing for children.

Every mile you run and every penny you raise will mean that when a child needs us, we’re there. Together we can rebuild children’s lives and prevent abuse from ruining any more.
