On 6th October 2013 Bournemouth will host its first ever Marathon Festival run by GSI events. The course includes some of the most stunning views in Bournemouth & Poole as well as both piers as part of the 26.2 miles route. Bournemouth University will be managing two of the 6 sectors.
School of Tourism lecturer, Dorothy Fox, will be part of the senior race crew during the marathon. As part of their training, they all attended the Edinburgh Marathon to shadow their counterparts.
Dorothy is leading the baggage team during the Bournemouth Marathon with members of Bournemouth Lifeguard Corps and Bournemouth School Combined Cadet Force.
Dorothy commented “The scouts who handled all the bags in Edinburgh were all very well organised group of volunteers and the trip was really useful. I look forward to being involved in the Bournemouth’s first marathon”
