Ripley Running Club – Weekly Round up

Week Commencing 21st September 2020

This Past Week….

Saw another well attended Tuesday night social session. These sessions are becoming more popular every week, with sessions that are catering for everyone. This is down to brilliant organisation from our runner of the week – Joanne Howett and of course, our voluntary run leaders.

Social distancing adhered at all times – Good safe running on Tuesday. Well done team.

This Tuesday saw four groups heading out over various terrains, times, distances and paces.

They involved, Group 1 – doing intervals from Codnor Castle with Richard ‘Bunda’ Phillis. Attending this session for some puishment was Mike Corrigan, Ian Warton-Woods, Richard West and Chris O’Donnel. Group 2 – took on mile loops on Broadway in Swanwick with Esther Broughton, Tanya Heaslip, Stuart Green, Colin Smith and Martin P-Yorkshire. Group 3 – took on an easy paced social run over 4 miles with Amy Bradley, Jo Ingram, Nick Hilton, Charli Wilson and Jo Gilliver. Group 4 – risked it all and took on a 6-7 mile, hilly off road route from Wirksworth Stone Centre, attended by Tim Jaques, Alison Mick Wareham and Matt Jones. Well done all and keep up the good work.
