Luchon Aneto Trial Marathon

On Saturday 12 July a group of 5 Ripon members ventured to France for the 26 mile Luchon Aneto Trail Marathon, which includes 2,500 metres of ascent with difficult conditions under foot including sections of snow.

The difficulty of the course was reflected in the times with Joe Lofthouse superb to finish in 6 hours 6 minutes. Ray Raper was only 3 minutes behind (6:09), Iain Wallace (6:38), Jo Wallace third in her V2 group (6:44), with Simon Merrin (7:31) completing the group.
