Welcome to the official website for the
Folkestone Coastal 10k
We look forward to the 2022 race when we hope all will be back to normal, but if not, don’t worry because we are fully capable of having the race within COVID restrictions in place.
Here is an overview of the 2021 race:
Wow what a fantastic 10th anniversary race. We sold out quickly with over 900 record entries and ideal weather conditions. After months of planning and keeping coronavirus compliant we soon received entries from as far as Birmingham with many running club members participating from all over the country and many fun runners enjoyed a welcome back to competitive running. A restricted field of over 900 runners lined up on Folkestone promenade on Sunday for the start of the popular 10th Folkestone Coastal 10K. The course records remain and those elite athletes competing have already confirmed they will be back next year for the challenge.
Runners set off at various times in waves over a one-hour duration to comply with the revised Covid-19 rules set by UK Athletics. This year we enjoyed support from our title sponsor SAGA and many other companies as well as new marshal teams from the Police Cadets and Folkestone College. In addition, the local business community entered many teams including SAGA, Church & Dwight, Folkestone College and Metroline for the first time. They along with many individuals are raising funds for many good causes.
