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.

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.

Due to popular demand, we are pleased to announce that for this year’s race we are now offering a virtual option! This year, we’ve even got some runners who will be on board a cruise ship with our main sponsors SAGA. Do tell your contacts.

We look forward to welcoming you to the next Folkestone Coastal 10k – please do tell your friends.

Proceeds will go to charitable causes

The race will commence at the eastern entrance of the coastal park on the promenade. At this area will be the new registration area and facilities within the carpark which is closed for our use. 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 or Leas Cliff Hall walk up to the start, which will be at 10:00 prompt – don’t be late! 

There will be a children’s race for under 15s which is held shortly before the main race at 9:30am prompt. 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.
