Popular road races returning to Folkestone – Take your pic or do both!
The popular road races; Folkestone Coastal 10K scheduled for Sunday 30th May 2021 and the Folkestone Rotary Half Marathon also scheduled for Sunday 19th September 2021 are confirmed on the race calendar.
Race Director for both Ray Johnson comments:
“ I am pleased we are able to confirm the races will go ahead as planned. As with last year’s events we are ensuring we comply with England Athletics requirements and will once again ensure they will both be Covid-19 compliant. Naturally the safety for all participants, our many volunteers and spectators remains essential. I have been overwhelmed by positive comments and support which is most appreciated and we have already received many registrations. Register soon as places are limited.
With the Folkestone Coastal 10K this will be our 10th and last year’s winners both smashed the fastest male and female categories. We already have teams entered and many are running for good causes. It is with regret however this year’s Children’s race on the 10K will not be possible.
On the Half Marathon we have moved the date forward to catch some of those training for the London Marathon in an effort to support them and once again many have registered.
I am also pleased to update that we are endeavouring to make the race the most environmentally friendly as possible. Over the years we have been constantly reducing our impacts and we are hoping to be a good exemplar.
We are all looking forward to getting back to normal and we can’t wait to see you all again. ”
