Race Report 01/06/21

Another weekend, another virtual race, this time the Alternative Ripon 10, devised by Duncan Fothergill.  The figure of 8 course, with the start in the middle, goes left along the Cleveland Way towards the Sutton Bank visitor centre involving a 5 mile loop, and then right to High Paradise with another, approximate, 5 mile loop.  The glorious weather required an early start to run in the coolest part of the day, and the multi-terrain course is every bit as tough as the actual Ripon 10, with beautiful scenery, for those who had time to look!  Andrew Price particularly enjoys this type of course, and recorded the fastest time of 1.06.01, with Paul Peacock not far behind, 2nd in 1.06.28.  Matt Jones came 3rd in 1.07.29, Tom Levi 4th in 1.09.56, Kieran Leppard 5th in 1.13.11, Joe Poole 6th in 1.16.02, Walter Busuttil 7th in 1.17.56, Rob Burn 8th in 1.18.52, David Fawkes 9th in 1.20.10 and Alan Simpson 10th in 1.20.44.  
Trudy Morrice was once again in amongst the early finishers, 1st lady and 8th overall, in 1.18.45, with Gemma Tutty 2nd, 12th overall, in 1.21.23, Lorraine Hiles 3rd in 1.23.41, Kirsty Naylor 4th in 1.31.02, Clare Tempest 5th in 1.32.04, Hilary Coventry 6th in 1.32.31, Stephanie Hawkins 7th in 1.37.42, Tracey Lowther 8th in 1.39.36, Sonja van der Westhuisen 9th in 1.41.48 and Faye Levi 10th in 1.42.00.
This longer, harder, run reduced numbers slightly, but even so, there were 64 finishers, and well done to every single one of them.  Also running were Adrian Elsworth, Paul Chapman, Brett Edgeworth, Andy Butcher, Pedro Carrasco, Gary Wilkinson, Joe O’Keefe, Duncan Fothergill, Adrian Saunders, Dave Baker, Martyn Coy, Geoff Bullock, Dave Wood, David Tervitt, Mike Lowther, Steve Billings, Paul Goacher, Sarah Harrison, Pauline Percy, Andrea Colls, Nicola Jenkins, Trish Radford, Alison Butcher, Joe Joyce, Faith Coy, Will Jagger, David Palmer, Lucy Sillars, James Stephenson, Drikus van der Westhuisen, Phillip Craig, Margaret Wikeley, Christine Burn, Ruth Pollard, Clare Jones, Jacob Condor, Kimberli Werner, Ellen Brookes, Paul Adams, Liz Stephenson, Alan Wikeley, Sharon Keegan, Sarah Goacher, and Denise Gandy – several of the above running 10 miles for the first time!
