Bournemouth Parks - Lower Gardens
Enjoy a weekend away with the whole family and soak up the sun, sea & sand of Bournemouth's beautiful beaches.
Take a beautiful and iconic venue such as the Bournemouth Pier, wait until dusk, get the family together (and we mean everyone – grandparents, uncles, aunties, parents, kids, friends!), dig out the fluorescent clothing and grab everything and anything that glows or flashes. Then set off on a Supernova 5K!
The Supernova 5K event is the perfect way to get involved in the Run Bournemouth with your family and friends, whilst taking in the atmosphere and fun.
Starting on Bournemouth Prom and finishing near the Run Bournemouth Hub in the Lower Gardens, this beautiful coastal route allows runners the rare opportunity to run along the iconic Bournemouth Pier, which is lit up at dusk to create a beautiful spectacle for participants and spectators alike!

A fantastic half marathon with just one decent climb at 8 miles to break it up! Apart from that the course is flat and fast and would be quick on the right day with low wind! Highly recommended and the course is beautiful along the beach! Rob A
First time visit here and I'll definitely return.. Marshals were great and so was the local support!! Good half marathon to make a weekend of it if not local! Stuart K
The route is very scenic and lovely views.. The finishers medal was really good and you get a few goodies. Tara N
There is something for everyone in the family from as little as 3-4 years old. Good atmosphere by the sea front. Fast course. Local support is good along the course. Bassem A
You get to run along both Boscombe and Bournemouth piers. Alison H
Great local support for a course with fantastic views. The downside of seaside routes is the wind, though! Harvey G
First time I had run this event and it was very well organised. It’s an out and back course taking in both Boscombe and Bournemouth piers. I would certainly recommend this race to other runners. Goodie bag was good too including medal and t-shirt. Ian D
All in all a very good half marathon, the views were fantastic and the initial organisation I thought was brilliant. Adam B
This is the first time I've ever done Bournemouth Half and I absolutely loved it. It has an early start so it's not for a later riser but walking to the start pen amid an autumn sunrise was lovely, if not rather chilly and you were finished by lunchtime. Simone E
