I’m delighted that there was a terrific turnout for this year’s race, with over 680 entrants and good support along the whole course, with the crowds and marshals creating a great atmosphere. We enjoyed fair weather conditions for our sixth Folkestone Coastal 10K. The children’s race was well-attended with great enthusiasm from these budding athletes of the future.

Congratulations to all those who participated, and in particular this year’s winner Robert Latala who came in at an excellent 0:33:13. Similarly the ladies’ winner, Tina Oldenshaw from Paddock Wood AC, achieved an outstanding 0:38.51.

The male and female team prizes were awarded to the home team of Folkestone Running Club. Many Kent clubs participated and runners came from London and as far as Scotland. There was a good team turnout including A(AMBOOR) COY Royal Gurkha Rifles from Shorncliffe barracks.

This year’s children’s race enjoyed a good field of over 40 runners, and the winner was Hana Kurasawa-Welling, followed closely by Joshua Evans, the first boy home.

It is a fantastic achievement for the runners to complete the course either as an elite runner or a new participant to a 10 kilometre race. The objectives of the race were to encourage participation, assist charities, visit our district and promote good health, as well as increasing the profile of sport and I am particularly delighted that there were many more runners and spectators than last year.

It was especially pleasing that there were so many spectators along the whole route which gave tremendous encouragement to the runners – there must have been hundreds providing support!

First indications are that the event has raised in excess of £25,000 which is a terrific start for many worthwhile causes. Last year’s event raised £40,000 and we are set to beat this. This year’s event will provide vital support for various projects including The Rainbow Centre, Gurkha Memorial Fund, Step Short, Folkestone Youth Project, Green Kordofan and local Rotary Clubs for distribution to local causes.

The event went extremely well and help was received with sincere thanks from over 80 marshals and assistants including Folkestone Running Club, Rotary Clubs, Folkestone Harbour. I would also like to thank Shepway District Council and Folkestone Police for their valuable support.

Once again we have received tremendous feedback from the runners congratulating us for such a great event, by way of organisation, goody bags and encouragement from marshals. They also thoroughly enjoyed the course and all of the facilities available.
