Bournemouth Marathon Festival

The 2017 Bournemouth Marathon Festival takes place on Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 October 2017.

Bournemouth Marathon Festival is aptly named – it is more than just a marathon! There is a varied programme of events, with something for runners of all abilities. Bournemouth is a great location, with plenty of things to do for the whole family, even non-runners!

Saturday 7 October 2017

  • Junior 1.5km for children aged 6-8
  • Junior 2km for children aged 9-12
  • Supersonic 10km, a flat, fast course with the emphasis on speed
  • Speed of Light 5km for over 11s. Running at dusk, this is a fun run where entrants are encouraged to wear fluorescent kit to create an atmosphere.

  • Half Marathon – 8am
  • Full Marathon – 10am

The official  Bournemouth Marathon Festival website has full details and entry forms for all events.

The Arlington Hotel is just across the Gardens from the BMF hub, and just a short stroll from the beach, shops and restaurants, so book now, and bring the whole family for the weekend.
