Welcome to Ripon Runners
Ripon Runners was founded in 1984 as road running began its extraordinary ascendancy from the sport of eccentrics to probably Britain’s most participated in athletic activity. Our president, Monty Munson, now in his 80’s and still running, was one of our founder members as was Rodney Mills who in his seventies has found new fame as Britain’s over 70 indoor champion at 400 metres.
James Herriot Trail
On Sunday 27 July, The James Herriot Trail Race offered spectacular views through Swaledale and across the Dales, making the 14km race a popular event. Starting from Castle Bolton and after a steep ascent start, runners take the high ridge route before descending back down in to the valley for a fast and flat finish.
First home for the club in 25th position out of 218 entrants in 65 minutes 38 seconds was Ben Imeson, followed by Allan Hansen in 70:41.
We offer our congratulations to Emma and Dan upon the birth of their first baby on July 12th, Samuel Derek Robinson (Sammy) weighed in at 8lb 5oz. I’m sure we will soon see Emma at the club again and before long competing as well.
