A wet and windy Good Friday in Folkestone


Good Friday was forecast to bring with it the seemingly traditionally poor Bank Holiday weather with a return to decidedly unfriendly running conditions however in the end the rain held off although the wind was a permanent feature on all parts of the course. This, however, did not deter 19 hardy Thanet Roadrunners from turning out at this popular local Easter fixture which featured nearly 500 finishers in the end.


The race was won in a rather speedy 52 mins 08 seconds by Michael Coleman of Medway & Maidstone who was chased home by Aboura Mahieddine of Thanet Roadrunners who finished just over a minute later in 53:20 – clearly the 1stThanet Roadrunner across the finish line and less than a minute outside his own club 10-mile record set at this race 5 years ago.


1stLady home (and 18th overall) just over the hour in 1:00:58 was Tina Oldershaw of Paddock Wood whilst the 1stTRAC lady home was Genevieve Holden in 1:18:38 in 200thplace overall.
