More than 400 signed up for 10k race on Sunday.
Preparations are well under way for Folkestone’s newest addition to the racing calendar.
The Folkestone 10k takes place on Sunday with organisers expecting more than 400 to take part, with late registrations being accepted.
The race starts at 10am at the former Rotunda Site on the Folkestone seafront, before heating towards Hythe. It returns along the same route on the flat promenade so there is a good chance for runners to get their personal bests.
Race director Ray Johnson said: “The event will be supporting local and international charitable causes, and participants are encouraged to run for their chosen charity.
“I am pleased to report we have also received registrations from a few teams including Metroline who will be running for Great Ormond Street, SAGA Charitable Trust and Maidstone Fire Brigade.
“We have various age ranges registered including a number of 15-years-olds who have been invited to participate from local schools to an 80 year old. Runners have also registered from as far afield as Scotland and Holland.”
The fee on the day, will be £16. More details are available on our website www.folkestonecoastal10k.co.uk where application forms may be downloaded.
