Burton Leonard 10k
Ripon Runners supported the Burton Leonard 10k run on Sunday 14 July, entering 33 runners out of the 200 entrants. The race, which has always been a huge success, has been superbly organized over the last 27 years by Eric & Wilks. They have now decided to enjoy a well earned rest, and to ensure the continuation of the event, have handed over the running to a new group for 2014.
First home for the club was hot shot defending champion Mike Appleton, who came 5th overall this time in 36mins 51 secs. With Derek McCreadie (39.24) and Alex Fawcett (39.46) also putting in strong performances, the three of them took the men’s team prize.
