The course starts and finishes from the Folkestone seafront. From here, runners will head towards Hythe along the promenade before turning back at the 5k mark. The route affords runners plenty of chances to enjoy the beauty of the coastline.
This flat, out-and-back route is also traffic-free, making it a perfect race for those who are relatively new to running, as well as those looking to smash their PB.

the area behind the arrival line was too small - not enough space for handing out medals and goodies meant there were too many runners waiting - and it was difficult to cross the arrival line and stop the clock...

Was a bit crazy at the end. Some people was unable to cross the line including myself. I had to push past.

Great race. Signs to show where bag drop is would help but not a major issue. Lovely route, plenty of support . Disappointed that no goodie bags or bottles left for the slower runners. We paid the same as the faster runners but miss out.

Was very congested at the finish line. Seemed to be a bottle neck giving out the goody bags

Good marshalling and rewards at end. Only suggestion is to have the tables giving things away further from finish to avoid congestion when crossing the finish line
