Folksworth 15

Sunday 21st January 2024, 11am

About the race

Now in its 33rd year, the route takes in some great scenery over two laps of an undulating course, all on country roads.

With three fairly steep hills on each lap the course is testing, yet the hills do not deter runners returning year after year to take part.

The Folksworth 15 has become an annual race fixture for many runners and is a great training race in preparation for one of the many spring marathons.

Each year we receive very positive feedback which has given the Folksworth 15 its reputation of a well organised, well marshalled race with a technical top for all runners.
