Yaxley Runners are sad to announce that due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation in the UK, we are cancelling the 2021 Folksworth 15 race.
Current circumstances mean it will be impossible to safely put on the race that we all love so much.
If possible, we will look at scheduling an alternative event later in the year.
Thank you for all your support over the years – we look forward to welcoming everyone back to Folksworth in 2022.
Race date: Sunday 19th January 2020
Now in its 31st 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. Click here to see the course route and profile.
