Race Listing

Folkestone 10k

‘Hyde and seek’ is top of the agenda this weekend as runners head to the capital to seek out PBs at London Hyde Park 10K. Another 10k in the Big Smoke is the Pride Run. The London Frontrunners event has its roots in the LGBT community, but has grown to appeal to all runners. Away from London – and indeed the mainland – the Isle of Wight Marathon returns for a 59th year. Check out race results and upcoming events on our race listing page.

Don't forget that you can also add your race's details to our event listings by signing up as a race organiser.

Good luck to everyone racing over the coming week!
