THE RIPTON RIDGE RUN is an annual fundraiser to benefit the Ripton Elementary School, put on by Friends of Ripton School, Inc. The race 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 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 and many 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!
