Man vs Race Series

Julian Davis and Sheena Jackson took on the final race of the Man v Trilogy (and arguably the toughest) on Saturday 1 September. The approximately 22 mile long course sets off from Caernarfon and takes in the summit of Snowdon before descending towards Llanberis. The vertical kilometre at mile 19 is particularly brutal but the climb up results in another fantastic descent to the water obstacles and a spot of abseiling before the finish. The pair ran it in approximately 5 hours 30 minutes and had another grand day out.

Hardmoors Princess

On Saturday, eight members put on their finest tiaras and tutus to take part in the annual Hardmoors Princess Challenge. They were blessed with glorious sunny weather and spectacular coastal views. This is a fundraising event for the Scarborough and Ryedale Mountain Rescue Team.

The route follows both the Cleveland Way and along the cinder track from Ravenscar to Robin Hoods Bay. Linda Cadman, Wendy Green and Andrea Richardson opted for the ‘short and sweet’ Challenge of 8.5 miles. Andrea being ‘Queen Bee’ kept them all in order and made sure they finished together in style! Stephen and Kate Reilly, Lucy and Ed Smith and Nicole Sutton completed the ‘One in the Middle’ challenge (18 miles). They were all rewarded with a party bag, sparkly medal and a chip butty to finish with – what more could anyone want from a race!!

Roseberry Topping Fell Race

On a Wednesday evening, Lena Conlin was the only Ripon Runner at the Roseberry Topping Fell Race. The race is in aid of the National Trust and comprises running from the Roseberry Topping car park to the trig point at the top of the hill and back. Lena finished it in 26 min 55.
