Grewelthorpe 13k Multi Terrain Race
On the Sunday 5 October, blue skies and the beautiful countryside greeted competitors at the inaugural Grewelthorpe 13k Multi Terrain race.
Linda Cadman, who at the age of 64 has only been running for a few months and having only previously run up to 10k distance, took on the tough undulating course and finished to applause from team mates in 1 hour 49 minutes 10 seconds. Linda was supported and encouraged around the course by fellow Ripon Runner Paula Johnstone to cross the finish line together.
James Boddy proved what a great runner he is by claiming second prize overall by smashing the one hour barrier in 56 minutes 39 sec. Iain Wallace was next back for the club in 7th place (1:03:26) followed by Martin Gabriel (1:04:46), Ray Johnstone (1:05:51), Jo Wallace (1:11:27), Adam Hinchcliffe (1:12:49), Jill Holt (1:14:37), Stan Appleton (1:15:33), Lester Pickard (1:24:02), Helen Pickard (1:25:05), Chris Bennett (1:25:17), Jackie Turner (1:25:52), Nicole Sutton and Jo Thwaites (1:26:04), and Clare Childs (1:26:05).
