Kilburn Kanter 2014
Ripon members were again present at this year’s LDWA organised Kilburn Kanter on Saturday 1 November. The 24 mile course has 3,500 feet of ascent takes in the villages of Cold Kirby, Hawnby and Boltby before returning to Kilburn via a final steep climb from Lake Gormire up to Sutton Bank visitor centre.
Beautiful sunny blue skies and mild temperatures made conditions perfect for running and enjoying the great scenery.
The dynamic duo of Ray Raper and Paul Morgan were Ripon’s first back in a stunning time of 4 hours 17 minutes. Matthew Holt was guided around the course by Andy Wray to finish in 4 hours 32 minutes, while Tim Joynson and Simon ‘Marathon Man’ McCudden returned 30 minutes later.
