Summer is here and the weather has certainly taken a turn for the hotter, but that didn’t stop members of Folkestone Running Club getting out.
On Saturday, as the temperatures slowly started to rise, Chris Childs competed in the Arctic One Super Sprint Tri at the marvellous Eton Dorney.
Although Chris was the only member who entered a race in this hot weather, many other FRC members started the weekend, as usual, running Parkruns.
In Maidstone, Deborah Jeffery was the first Woman back in a time of 22:47.
At the Brentwood Parkrun Brent Parker and Caroline Curtis ran together in a time of 36:54 and 36:55.
And of course, many FRC runners turned up to run the Folkestone Parkrun (and a few popped down for a much needed dip in the sea afterwards!) It was a very successful week for the FRC women with fist, second and third place going to FRC Runners. Louisa Eede came first in a time of 23:15 followed by Vicky Scott in second place in a time of 23:20 and then Kirsty Wilson in third place in 23:53.
