About this run route

Start / Finish

Three Hills Sports Centre

This run starts and finishes at the Three Hills Sports Centre. The route uses safe crossing points of main roads (pedestrian crossings at Morrisons and Folkestone West train station) and makes its way up to the top of the Leas via Godwyn Road.

The run continues up around Cliff Road, then all the way down The Leas to the Stepshort Arch. Runners then turn here and head back up The Leas via the cliff top pathway used on the local Folkestone Parkrun, back around Cliff Road, retracing the route back to Three Hills.

As a shorter alternative, runners can loop around The Leas Bandstand and back up via the cliff top pathway as above, reducing the distance to 4 miles.
