Jolly Holly Jog 2021

28 Dec 2021

Ripon, North Yorkshire
Starts: 11:00
Distance: 10 Kilometres
Entry Fee: £17.50 - £19.50

A scenic, multi-terrain course of approximately 10k, an undulating route mainly on footpaths through parkland

The race starts on Hell Wath Nature Reserve, goes up Whitcliffe Lane onto public footpaths through Mackershaw Woods and through Studley Deer Park, passing Monty’s bench (in memory of our club co-founder and former club president). The course then goes out of the main gate at Fountains Abbey, right, up Plumpton Lane, and returns via a short steep climb in Mackershaw Woods, across to Whitcliffe Lane and back towards Hell Wath Nature Reserve. Following a short section through the woods at Hell Wath, the course then emerges onto the field back to the finish. This year, we’re partnering with Trees Not Tees to offer you the option of planting a tree instead of receiving our event t-shirt. Planting a tree is one of the best things you can do to fight climate change, as they remove carbon dioxide from the air as they grow. They also provide a habitat for a wide range of the UK’s most endangered and loved species, and create clean air for us to breathe. Your tree will be planted in Scotland to grow as part of a whole new forest full of native broadleaf tree species. You’ll receive a certificate from Trees Not Tees that includes a picture of your tree, details of the species, and a unique geo-location address so you can even go and visit.
