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.

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.

Latest news

Green Kordofan have approached us and would dearly like runners to raise funds for the charity. Check out Green Kordofan and please make contact via the contact page to request more information or email directly ragababog@yahoo.com. Many runners now raise funds for many good causes so any help you can offer no matter how small would be appreciated.

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! (If COVID restrictions are still in place, the race may commence earlier and we will update you)

There is normally a children’s race for under 15s which is held shortly before the main race at 9:30am and we are very hopeful this will be available for the next race. 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.
