Shepway Sports Trusts Awards, Park Run Fun and more ......

It was a successful week for FRC at the Shepway Sports Trust Awards, held at the Leas Cliff Hall in Folkestone on Friday 14th July.

We had 4 nominations from the club – Sport Project of the Year (Park Bench to parkrun), Volunteer of the Year, Veteran Sports Personality of the Year (David Weekes) and Club of the Year of which we won two.

Julie Gibbs won Volunteer of the Year for founding the Park Bench to parkrun project and being a valued volunteer for the Club.  She has helped many people achieve their goals by being inspirational and supportive to all.  Julie has recently achieved her CIRF – Coach in Running Fitness. A well deserved award.

Folkestone Running Club won the Club of the Year Award – ‘FRC has inspired anybody of any ability to start running.  If it’s members aren’t producing incredible times in competition, they are volunteering at community initiatives.  The “family feel” is evident, with many generations wearing the club colours proudly.

Back to the running and Jennifer Quinn took part in the Cranbrook 5k – 5th lady in a time of 26:45 and Anthony Scott the Cranbrook 10k (49:21)  The race starts at the High Weald Academy in Cranbrook and offers a 5k or 10k distance,  the route takes you through some of the pretty footpaths and trails around the pretty village.
