Trainers illustrationIn this running festival, 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. 

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.

How you'll make a difference

Abuse changes childhoods, but so can we. By taking part in a walk or trek for us, your donation will make sure that when a child needs a helping hand, we're there.

We help children across the UK to rebuild their lives and we're finding ways to prevent it runing anymore.
