Ripon Ultra 2014
Ripon Runners were successful on home soil at the Round Ripon Ultra race on Saturday 4 October. The course takes a circular route following the northern section of the Ripon Rowel providing a very scenic 35 mile route which includes a world heritage site, pretty Yorkshire villages, woodland tracks & open moorland, with a wonderful downhill run through Studley Royal deer park and back into Studley Roger.
Alex Fawcett was once again in form as he averaged just over 8 minute miles for 3rd overall in 4 hours 47 minutes. A really strong run from female duo Anneke Imeson and Sally Leck saw them finish in a stunning time of 6:05, followed by Matthew Holt (6:35), Lena Conlin (7:23) and Chris I’Anson (7:38). Ripon claimed the team prize by having the first four finishers from one club.
