The BF & M Bermuda 10K starts outside the National Sports Stadium and follows Middle Road in the center of the island until it loops onto North Shore Road for the return journey to finish inside the stadium. The course is constantly rolling hills with a long uphill at mile 5. Course Map.

The PwC Bermuda Half-Marathon enjoys many breathtaking views of Bermuda’s South and North coasts.  The rolling course is camouflaged by the changing shades of blue ocean, bright hues of pastel colored houses, lush greenery and fascinating architecture, it’s easy to see why they call Bermuda paradise. Course Map.

For the first time, in 2020, the 45th PwC Bermuda Marathon will start at the historic Royal Naval Dockyard. Runners will have the opportunity to run along the scenic, quiet Bermuda Railway Trail for approximately 4.3 miles through Somerset and into Southampton, leaving the trail briefly to run over the iconic Somerset Bridge, the world’s smallest drawbridge. The course will pass by some of Bermuda’s most famous beaches, including Horseshoe Bay, Jobson’s Cove, and Warwick Long Bay. Runners will join the PwC Bermuda Half-Marathon course just after mile 14 and follow the remaining 12 miles of the PwC Bermuda Half-Marathon course to the finish line on Front Street in Hamilton. Course Map.
