Jolly Holly Jolly 2018
Updated: Jan 9, 2019
Back to the elements and the traditional Christmas/New Year trail 10k in Ripon, the ‘Jolly Holly Jog (JHJ). The JHJ changed the course this year to cut out a few road crossings I believe and most comments were positive. It’s an undulating, visually interesting route from west of the city up on the moorland near the river Skell, out through ‘Studley Park’ and back. This race was part of the CC (5th) and also because of the festive period, always has a great turnout. Thirty-five from ERC made up nearly 800! Our top three runners were, in the ‘Female CC’, Sam Davies, 43.27; Marie Murtagh, 47.22 and Emily Gregg, 49.34. In the ‘Men’s CC’, Craig Gath timed 42.08, Neil King, 42.55 and Colin Fletcher, 43.39.
