RIPTON — The Ripton Ridge Run was back in-person this year. A few runners opted for the virtual race, but well over 100 participants came out to enjoy one of two race courses and a to-go lunch of homemade chili, cornbread, and a cookie. With the help of more than 50 volunteers behind the scenes, COVID protocols in place, a generous raffle, and some beautiful weather, the festivities and competition were enjoyed by and kept safe for all. Organizers were very grateful  to all the runners, supporters, and the Ripton Volunteer Fire and First Response Department.
