About this event

Join us at the Bournemouth Marathon Festival and experience running as it should be, with a beautiful coastal route boasting sea views and taking in Boscombe and Bournemouth piers, with an amazing atmosphere that’s second to none. There’s a distance to suit every runner, including a full marathon, half marathon, 10K, 5K and junior races too.

We have free charity places available in all distances with minimum fundraising targets. Or, you can purchase your own place in a race and still join Team Stroke, receiving all of the same support and we just ask that you raise as much as you can. 

Why join #TeamStroke?

Everyone deserves to live the best life they can after stroke. Taking part in the Bournemouth Marathon means you are part of the team helping to rebuild lives after stroke. Along the way, we will support you with training tips and fundraising advice, one-to-one support and we’ll also be there cheering you on when you cross the finish line.

By joining Team Stroke, you’ll receive all of the following:

  • Stroke Association technical running vest.
  • Dedicated support from our fundraising team.
  • Fundraising pack full of tips and ideas.
  • Lots of cheers on the day from our big purple cheer points.

We're here to help you get the best out of your fundraising. Our team is full of ideas and advice, and we can send you lots of balloons, posters and information leaflets to help promote your fundraising.
