With the Olympics less than a year away, one Ripon sports group is hoping to help inspire the next generation of athletes.

Ripon Runners has set up a junior section within the running club.

Coaching will be led by Lisa Sorby who has inspired many adult runners with her beginners groups.

Lisa is a qualified teacher with UKA qualifications in Children in Athletics and Endurance Running and is an experienced runner herself.

She will be assisted by Lena Conlin a teaching assistant at Outwood Academy Ripon. A runner and triathlete, Lena is currently taking a coaching course.

The club is also looking for local businesses who would like to sponsor the juniors.

Sessions take place at Ripon Cricket Club on Tuesdays from 5.15pm to 6.15pm.
