Rock 'n' Rowel the 2nd
On the Saturday 26 July the Rock ‘n’ Rowell was held for the second year running. An LDWA race, this offered many Ripon Runners the chance of a local 26 mile course with over 3,000 feet of ascent.
Starting from Dacre Village Hall, the course includes parts of the Ripon Rowel Trail, and passes through the Valley of the Seven Bridges and Brimham Rocks.
With hot conditions making running the whole course very difficult, Ray Raper and Nick Wilson managed a fantastic time of 4 hour 57 minutes. A further group comprising of John Grundy, Mike Penock, Angie Benson, Dawn Trevethick and Tim Joynson completed a run / walk together in 7 hours 22 minutes.
