Welcome to the official website for the
Folkestone Coastal 10k
We look forward to the 2023 race which will be held in Folkestone and will include a virtual option to run. Children are welcome to join.
Here is an overview of the 2022 race:
Wow, what a tremendous 11th year race. We sold out quickly with our highest ever record of 1,000 entries and ideal weather conditions. After months of planning it was so nice to have a normal race with the start back to normal and the Children’s race returning along with a super crowd of spectators and not forgetting our fabulous volunteers and helpers. This year we introduced a virtual option and some runners enjoyed running on cruise ships.
With entries on the main race from as far as Newquay with over 35 running clubs participating from all over the country along with many fun runners all enjoyed a welcome back to competitive running. An enthusiastic field of nearly 800 runners lined up on Folkestone promenade on Sunday for the start of the popular 11th Folkestone Coastal 10K. The course records remain and those elite athletes competing have already confirmed they will be back next year for the challenge.
This year we enjoyed support from our title sponsor SAGA and many other companies. Our ever reliant marshal teams from the various Rotary Clubs and the welcomed Police Cadets along with many volunteers certainly did the event proud. In addition, the local business community entered many teams including SAGA, Church & Dwight, Folkestone College, Sleeping Giant Media and Jenner’s Construction for the first time. They along with many individuals are raising funds for many good causes.
