Folkestone running club – weekend race report – 11th November 2018

On Sunday a Poignant day, in the wind and hail, a flag was raised at 11am to remember those who fought and died for our country.  To mark the end of WW1 an Armistice day challenge run took place at Samphire hoe running as many laps as possible under the shadow of the famous White Cliffs at Dover.

Anthony Scott managed a remarkable 20 miles as a tribute to those who were never to return.
