Thousands enjoy annual Run & Ride

The annual Run & Ride running and bicycling series of events was a big success as the Scripps Ranch Old Pros estimated about 4,100 participants took part on the morning of July 4. The events included a 10K Run, a 2-Mile Fun Run, a 50-Mile Bike Ride, a 28-Mile Bike Ride and a 12-Mile Bike Ride. While some very fit, top athletes entered the events, it was clear from the look on the faces of participants that fun was the rule of the day.
