Race limit 1,000
Popular 10 kilometre race from Folkestone seafront
towards Hythe and back Flat, fast course
UKA Registered event
Despite the weather conditions, the 2015 race was a great success with over 700 entrants, being the fourth race. We were delighted that the course record was broken and congratulations goes to Paul Whittaker of Southend AC at 32:08. It’s now possible to enter for next year’s race, which is proving extremely popular. The race starts from Folkestone seafront, heads towards Hythe and then returns, whist taking in the beautiful coastal scenery that the area has to offer. This is a flat promenade route, chip-timed, traffic free and a great race for those who are relatively new to running, but also for those more experienced runners looking for a personal best. The event will be supporting local and international charitable causes, and participants are encouraged to run for their chosen charity.
The main race will commence from the former Rotunda Site on Folkestone seafront (CT20 1PX) and will set off at 10am prompt – don’t be late! There is also a children’s race for under 15s which is held shortly before the main race at 9:30am, so it’s an ideal opportunity to bring your friends and family to join in the fun. There are a wide range of prizes and we encourage corporate teams to enter, as it’s a great opportunity to engage with employees and get them involved not only in fitness but perhaps raise some money for your chosen causes.
We have had great feedback from runners, not only relating to the experience but also regarding the medal and marshalling.
Last year’s was a terrific success, with 650 people running in beautiful weather conditions. In addition, the course record was smashed for both winning male and female runners. Plenty of good feedback was received, and the event was covered on Academy FM and featured on ITV Meridian News. Further information, pictures and results are available on the results tab above. Last year’s event raised over £40,000 for good causes and we are set to beat that this year. As always we work constructively on feedback and extend a big thank you as always to you for supporting the event, as well as to our sponsors.
We look forward to welcoming you to the next Folkestone Coastal 10k – please do tell your friends.
Keep on running!
