The winners of the  2018 Ridgefield Half Marathon were William Gasparini with a time of 1:22:32 and Kendall Lyons, with a time of 1:26:33.  The weather was pristine for the Half, which had a field 400 runners complete the scenic 13.1-mile course.  An early start time, after-race festivities and a slight course change are among the new breath that Race Director Megan Searfoss has breathed into the half.  For complete results of the 41st half, click here.
