Lloyd Land Rover Ripon proud to sponsor Fountains 10k
Date posted: 19 April 2017
The Fountains 10k is a great event for runners of all abilities with a mixed terrain route starting from the village of Grantley, near Ripon, North Yorkshire. It's an undulating route that takes in quiet country roads, off-road trails and scenic moorland within Nidderdale.
This year, the annual Fountains 10k has raised more than £10,000 for much-needed IT equipment at Fountains CE Primary School in Grantley, Ripon.
More than 350 runners took part in the race, now in its 19th year and the main fund-raising event for the school. The money raised will enable a new interactive screen to be installed in the school hall and provide additional laptops to support the children’s learning.
Race director Mark Reed, whose children are both pupils at Fountains said, “We set ourselves a big challenge this year to raise £10,000 and I’m delighted that we hit our target. We can’t thank all of the runner and sponsors enough for their support in helping us to achieve our goal. It has been a real team effort and we hope our children have seen this too!”
