Welcome to the official website for the
Folkestone Coastal 10k

We enjoyed good weather conditions for the 2018 race, which was a great success with over 670 entrants, being the sixth race. Congratulations goes to Richard Newsome at 34:22. We have had great feedback from runners, not only relating to the experience but also regarding the medal and marshalling. The event was covered on local news. Further information, pictures and results are available on the results page. The race raised lots of money for good causes and we are set to do the same 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.

It’s now possible to enter for this year’s race, which is proving extremely popular. The race starts from Folkestone seafront, heads towards Hythe and then returns, whilst 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 race will commence at the eastern entrance of the coastal park on the promenade. At this area will be the new registration and facilities. This is near to the bottom of the Leas Cliff Lift. Plenty of signs will direct you to this area and do park within the harbour and walk up to the start, which will be at 10:00 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 is 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 look forward to welcoming you to the next Folkestone Coastal 10k – please do tell your friends.

Proceeds will go to charitable causes
