It’s great to see some real life races taking place again and even better to see some Folkestone vests being dusted off and put to good use!
It was the Headcorn half marathon this weekend and Ivana Collier, Marie Brazier and Catherine Clipstone all took part. Ivana was first back in a PB time of 1:41:17. Catherine also ran a new PB finishing in 1:53:13. Marie, who was also combining this with the virtual Royal Parks event ran a time of 2:08:16. Well done ladies!
Last week was of course our very own Folkestone 10, taking place virtually this year, but this did mean that FRC members could also take part. In total 138 runners posted times and while there were no prizes this time, it was great to see some strong performances including PB times from Neil Trett (1:17:07) and Ivana Collier (1:14:19). Full results can be found at https://www.folkestone10mile.co.uk/results/2021-results/ and we hope to be back as normal on Good Friday next year!
Finally as restrictions have eased we can now return to club training sessions! These will take place every Tuesday evening at Three Hills. Anyone interested in joining us for the first time should visit https://folkestonerunning.club/home/membership/
