Kirkby Malzeard 10k
Ripon were treated to a local 10k on Saturday 7 June as the village of Kirkby Malzeard hosted its annual race. Fresh from helping Ripon Ladies win the team prize at the Ripon 10 mile race recently, Bridget Bastow continued her excellent form to be first lady home for Ripon in 46 minutes 47 seconds.
James Boddy proved too quick for his fellow team mates as he once again powered his way around the course to smash the 40 minute barrier in 39:06. Ultra Runner Nick Wilson made a rare appearance at the shorter distance course for a 42:54 finish, and Sarah Hood claimed first in her age category with 47:25.
Other results were: Joseph Lofthouse (40:02), Andy Turner (41:33), Allan Hansen (43:56), Ray Johnstone (45:55), Hayley Whipp (49:21), Kim Holden (51:21), Simon McCudden (51:22), Lester Pickard (53:00), Chris Bennett (53:38), Helen Pickard (54:36), Jackie Turner (55:09), Julie Merrin (56:07), Dawn Trevethick (57:14), Bob Mundy (58:34), Tracey Stainthorpe (59:15) Paula Johnstone (63:27) and Maggie Driffield (63:01).
