Thousands of runners will make their way to Bournemouth’s Pier Approach for the annual Bournemouth Bay Run on Sunday 3 April. Choosing between a half-marathon, 10km, 5km or a 1km family fun run, the event aims to encourage people of all abilities to take part whilst raising essential funds for charity.
The race, which takes place along the seven-mile stretch of golden sands between Alum Chine and Southbourne, will see even more runners than the 3,000 strong crowd of last year’s event taking part.
Emily Weaver, Race Director, said: “We’re looking forward to welcoming a new group of first-time as well as experienced runners to the Bournemouth Bay Run this April. The race always brings a great amount of energy to Bournemouth Seafront and encourages people to challenge themselves, no matter what their ability. It also serves as a fantastic opportunity to raise essential funds for our partner charity, the British Heart Foundation.”
The race aims to raise vital funds for the British Heart Foundation in their fight against heart disease. Since 2010, Bournemouth Bay Run has raised more than £251,294 from sponsorship alone.
Having been awarded gold status for two years running by the British Association of Road Races (BARR), the race is once again set to attract runners and fun runners in their thousands. This year, why not take part in the hashtag campaign #myheartbelongsto. Join in on Facebook and Twitter by letting us know who you will be running the Bournemouth Bay Run in aide of.
