Report from Andy Webster: First time I have entered the Ripon 10 (plus a little bit more).
For those of you that have not raced it, it is a similar climb to Otley 10 with some trails to run on. The weather was cool, and slightly windy. I set off with Chris Hosker, but after three miles he pulled off from me.
Despite currently racing more than training, legs felt better than the Leeds Half last week, where I got some post marathon and Tour De Yorkshire fatigue kick in. The three hills were ascended without too much difficulty. In the last two miles picked up a good pace and held a couple of runners off. Nice flapjack and a mug at the finish line. Full results

Report from Mark Hall: I did the Ripon 10m multi terrain event today. I finished 4th and 1st V55 in a time of 63.52. Winner was Mike Jefferies, BillinghamMarsh ac in 58.48. I was 1 min 43 secs slower than last year which is very disappointing but injury has not helped.
