Bank Holiday Sunday saw the 10th anniversary of the Folkestone 10k along the promenade from Folkestone to Seabrook and back.

The sell-out event welcomed the cooler conditions first thing but as runners began to hit their stride, the strong sun came through and then the wind on the return leg hampered many PBs.
