RC2 Run-Walk 2021 - 2.jpg

After being forced to go virtual last year due to COVID-19, the Ripon College/Ripon Community (RC2) Run/Walk returned Saturday to Vines & Rushes Winery with a socially-distanced format.

The event, which was founded in 2005 as the final exam for Ripon College Professor Joe Hatcher’s “Theories of Motivation” class, moved from the streets of Ripon to the Mascoutin Trail in 2016 — enabling runners to avoid steep hills and car traffic. It also helped block the wind, which was howling throughout the morning. The RC2 had 101 competitors taking part in 5k, 10k and half-marathon races.
