RB Supersonic 5K Route


The Supersonic 5K event is the perfect way to get involved in Run Bournemouth with your family and friends. Starting on Bournemouth Prom and finishing near the Lower Gardens, this beautiful coastal route allows runners the rare opportunity to run along the iconic Bournemouth Pier.
Undercliff Drive
Start as you mean to go on by taking in all the splendour of Bournemouth’s award winning beaches, running past some of the two hundred and fifty beach huts along the seafront!
At the 4KM mark you can see the famous Russell-Cotes Art Gallery & Museum. Situated on Bournemouth’s stunning cliff-top, over looking the sea, this exotic seaside villa has been sealed in time creating a unique atmosphere in a most dramatic setting.
As you hit the iconic Bournemouth Pier, you know you’re on the home stretch. The Pier was first constructed in 1856. The Pier has undergone numerous transformations over the years, with the addition of the Bournemouth Pier Theatre in 1959.
The most beautiful sight for any runner – the finish line! Lower Gardens was landscaped in 1871 after a competition was held by Bournemouth Council to design the new gardens, most of the Victorian splendour still remains today.
