Coronary heart disease is the UK's single biggest killer. Help grow our team and join the fight for every heartbeat. 

If you are looking for a place in the Bournemouth Marathon Festival and would like to join the BHF team, you can help us smash our fundraising goal and take us closer to beating heart disease. 

You still have the opportunity to secure your place with the race organisers and join our team as an own entry runner. 

As an own entry runner there’s no minimum fundraising pledge – we simply ask you to raise as much as you can. 

Our own entry runners are extremely valuable to us as all the money they raise ensures we have more funds to go towards fighting heart disease, the UK’s single biggest killer.


To join our team as an own entry runner:

• Register with the race organisers and create a 'my details' account and an entry

• Tell us once you have your own place by visiting your ‘my details’ account and selecting the BHF as your chosen charity.


Supporting you 

We value all the efforts our runners put into their training and fundraising so as a Heart Runner you’ll gain access to some fantastic benefits. You will be looked after every step of the way by our dedicated support team and world class running coaches. Other benefits include: 

  • Running top
  • Invite to a training day
  • Personalised training plan 
  • Access to our world class running coaches.
