Rodney's 400 m Challenge

If you remember, Rodney’s challenge was he would make a donation to Yorkshire Air Ambulance for each Ripon runner beating his M75, 400 m time of 73:40 at the European Indoor Championships in San Sebastian in early 2013.

In fact, given the local conditions at the cricket club Rodney allowed a target of 78 seconds for the men and 80 seconds for the women. Rodney is happy to report that 10 men at £5 each and 4 women at £10 each met the challenge resulting in him sending a cheque of £90 to the Air Ambulance. A very generous act and well done to all who completed in the challenge.
