The Ripton Ridge Run, celebrating its 35th year, begins with registration at 11 a.m., at Ripton Elementary School.
Over these many years, this community event continues to bring the whole town together to raise money for the students at Ripton Elementary School. As always, the event includes a 5K run, a 10.4K run, and a non-competitive 5K Fun Walk. The 10.4K run will go counterclockwise this year. There is also a short, non-competitive event for young children.
Pre-registration is now open and race-day registration is from 11 a.m. to noon at the Ripton Elementary School. The registration fee includes the race, a full bagged lunch, raffle, awards, and a long-sleeved t-shirt. There are prizes for top runners as well as hand-made, colorful glass medallions for top runners in every age group.
Before Oct. 1, the cost is $35 for adults and $20 for seniors and children. After Oct. 1, fees increase slightly.
