There is also a short, non-competitive event for young children. The Ridge Run takes place on the Sunday of Columbus Day weekend. All courses start and finish at the Ripton Elementary School at 753 Lincoln Road in Ripton, VT. The race courses traverse roads in Ripton and the Green Mountain National Forest and include water stops.

Funds raised from the Ridge Run enable Ripton’s students to have enrichment programs, materials and activities
not possible within the regular school budget. The efforts of 50+ volunteers andmany generous sponsors are central in making this annual celebration of Ripton and its school such a success.  Please join in - run, walk and/or volunteer!  We can use your help as a volunteer in many different ways, not just on the day of the race.  There's bound to be a role that fits you! 

The Friends of the Ripton School invites runners and walkers of all levels to participate in the 34th annual Ripton Ridge Run!! This is a 10.4K loop run, a 5K run or a 5K Fun Walk through Ripton, VT on SUNDAY, OCTOBER 10th during peak foliage season or participate virtually wherever you choose.   All proceeds benefit the Ripton Elementary School.
