After all the Marathon excitement of last week it has been pretty quiet for the Folkestone Running Club.

The Podplus Ashford & District Half Marathon took place this weekend and 3 members took part in this.  Anthony Scott (1:53:53 after only completing the London Marathon last Sunday!!), John O’Hara (1:57:32) and Stephen King (2:08:21)

Faith Cowell  took on the Isle of Wight Challenge this weekend.  The route of 106km starts in Chale in the south of the island and takes in some stunning scenery, white cliffs, sandy beaches, fantastic views and an undulating coastal path finishing at the Needles is a real test of endurance.  She finished in an amazing 18 hours and 4 minutes came 16th woman and 84th overall. What a brilliant achievement.  I believe this was the longest endurance race by an FRC member??

40+ members of the club went out to celebrate their various successes over the last couple of months with a well deserved meal at ‘Lubens’ in Folkestone, organised by coach Catherine O’Connor.  It was good to see old and new members out enjoying themselves.
