The workforce from Jennyruth Workshops near Ripon has been busy making medals and trophies for the 2013 Lightwater Valley Challenge.

All runners in the 10K and 3K run – which takes place on Sunday, March 17 – will be presented with a bespoke medal made by the workers from the Bridge Hewick-based social enterprise. The students will also be at the race to present the medals to the runners.

Race organiser Richard Plummer, a supporter of the local charity, was delighted when Jennyruth confirmed it would be able to make the race medals and trophies.

He added: “We are also pleased local business Piccadilly Motors has agreed to fund all the medals and trophies. We are hoping for 300-plus runners on the day, a most generous sponsorship.’”

Entry forms for the race are available to download from or by telephone on (01765) 635276.
