About

Folkestone Running Club is a small friendly club for runners aged from 13 years or year 8, upwards and ability ranging from elite to those that run less competitively, in Folkestone and surrounding areas in Kent. We have been in existence for over 40 years.  We also have a partnership club Folkestone Running Club Juniors for the under 13 age group.
 
We exist primarily to encourage running at any standard, either with a view to competing in races from 5k to marathon, or simply for exercise and fun.  We do ask that all new members are able to run a 5k (or parkrun) and are willing/able to join in our workout sessions. We do run separate programmes periodically for those that do not meet our mimimum standard requirement for club nights, which we will advertise separately.
 
We regularly compete in local races and team based events and also take part in competitons on road, cross country and track at County, Area and National level.
We have almost 200 members, of whom nearly half are women.

For more information please get in touch via our contacts page.

Our Training

Our main club nights are Tuesday & Thursday. We meet at Three Hills Sports Park (full address and map below) at 18:30. The main training group usually do an interval session on the Cricket Field. This session is suitable for most abilities, although we do ask that all new members should be able to run a 5k (or parkrun) before joining us.  On these Club nights there may be other groups who will do a steady run, either around town or off-road into the hills.  On Saturday or Sunday, we'll do either a track session (spring/summer) or cross-country training (autumn/winter).
