THE RIPTON RIDGE RUN is an annual fundraiser to benefit the Ripton Elementary School, put on by the Friends of the Ripton School, Inc.  It includes a 5K run, a 10.4K run and a non-competitive 5K Fun Walk.  There is also a short, non-competitive event for young children. The Ridge Run takes place the Sunday of Columbus Day weekend.  All courses start and finish at the Ripton Elementary School on the Ripton-Lincoln Road in Ripton, VT. They traverse roads in Ripton and the Green Mt. National Forest and include water stops.  Funds from the Ridge Run enables Ripton’s students to have enrichment programs, materials and activities not possible within the regular school budget.  The efforts of nearly 50 volunteers go into making this annual celebration of Ripton and its school such a success.  Be sure not to miss next year’s event marking 30 years of Ridge Runs – Sunday, October 8, 2017.  Put it on your calendar now!
