Hoburne 5




Grange Road, Christchurch,

BH23 4JD Dorset, UK

Hoburne 5 mile Road race (Sun 30th Sept 2018)

The hosts for the start and finish of the race are once again Hoburne Park, part of the Hoburne Holiday Park Group.

It is a tremendous advantage to the event that we have such good facilities available.

Should you wish, there is an on site carvery available (but not included in the entry fee).

Entries are now open for the Hoburne 5 2018.

Entry fee (online or postal) is £8 (affiliated) / £10 (unaffiliated)


Last year the race raised £2900 for good causes:

£2700 to Bournemouth Leukaemia Fund (290340)*

£200 to Cancer Research UK


* boosted by contributions from: BAE Systems £750, the Roman Group £500 and Brewers Decorating £200


We also had some amazing sponsorship contributions which were used for positional prizes, spot prizes and goody bags.


Our quirky beachball medal isn't to everyone's taste so we are looking into metal medals as an alternative.


The new course was probably much the same for runners, but achieved our aims, as it was easier for us to manage, less awkward for road users on the course and easier for everyone to leave Hoburne Park. Alas, there was no opportunity to make it flatter.


The start time of 10:30 should lead to less traffic where the race passes the church. Thanks to some feedback from our marshals.
