The Ribble Way Run is a new annual run brought to the race calendar by the Rotary Club of Preston Guild. This run will take place along the scenic banks of the River Ribble starting and finishing at The Dolphin Inn – Marsh Lane, Longton, Preston. The race will take place on part of the 72mile Ribble Way footpath. All proceeds will be donated to local, national and international charities.

The idea for the Ribble Way Run came from one of our members who recently took up running. While jogging near to The Dolphin Inn they realised there was an opportunity to organise a run in the locality and so the idea was born.
