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. 

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 anymore.
