Poole Festival of Running Half Marathon

Sunday 2nd June, 9am

Sign up with us for a FREE Half Marathon Place when you raise £75 in sponsorship for Poole Hospital Charity

New in 2018, the first Festival of Running Half Marathon was a great success. The Half Marathon features a harbourside course heading out from Poole Park, heading down Poole Quay, then a loop around Upton Country Park, before heading back down the quay, along Baiter Park to the finish line back in Poole Park. A fast, flat course is run on roads and compacted gravel paths with plenty of support along the way.

All finishers get a t-shirt and medal.

The cut off time for the Half Marathon is 3 hours.

Minimum age is 18 on day of race.

Simply complete the form below to register your interest and a member of the fundraising team will be in touch to confirm your place. The minimum sponsorship target is £75. In order to participate 80% of this (£60) must be paid into Poole Hospital Charity before 17th May 2019. The remaining amount will be due before 21st June 2019.
