Our Chairman James Parkes is combining two of his hobbies and Running to raise funds for us here at Ripon Ymca.
Its been just over a year since he joined the Beginners Running Group at Ripon Runners...and he absolutely loves it.
Snape 10k was his first race following his 0 - 10k beginners running group. Since then he has completed a handfull of 10k races. To mark this one year anniversary he would like to use this race as an opportunity to raise some vital funds for us here at YMCA Ripon of which James is Chair of the Board of Trustees.
YMCA Ripon supports young people aged 16 -25 who are homeless or at risk of being homeless. In addition to providing a community space for all to use. More info can be found by visiting www.riponymca.org
