- Bournemouth's Hospice 10k set to get people moving

September 24, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News reports active travellers heading to the south coast in October could bring their running trainers along and get involved with Bournemouth's Hospice 10k.

The event is taking place on October 17th 2010 and will see plenty of people turning out to support three charities in the area - Friends of Forest Holme, Julia's House and Lewis-Manning, which is a voluntary hospice in Poole.

It will not only be super-fit athletes taking part, since everyone is encouraged to go at their own pace, which means guests at Bournemouth hotels could simply stroll around the course if they want to.

Part of the attraction of the Hospice 10k is the gorgeous route, which runs from Bournemouth Pier approach to Southbourne, before heading back.

Naturally, everyone participating can expect to get the full vocal backing of locals and other visitors in town to support runners.

Anyone interested in taking part should go online and register as soon as possible, since places are limited.

The entrance fee to run the Hospice 10k is £15, but the organisers have called on people to raise as much money as they can in sponsorship to ensure the charities receive a significant boost.

According to the organisers, the occasion will last from 10:00 to 14:00 BST.
