Results of Rowbotham's Round Rotherham

Saturday, 14th December, 2002

Take me to the Round Rotherham page, RHAC page, Henry's Home Page

Some details have been removed from the web page to keep within the required quota; if you want details please contact me,  Henry Marston (remember to delete the NOT)

This is where the results will first be published, after the event

Results in main listings have been adjusted for start times for 8:00 and relay

E-mail me for copies of results (taken off website because of quota limitations)

Walkers and 7am starters are given same position when finishing in a group, up to 5 seconds separating dibbing at the finish. Relay and 8am starters are regarded as racing, so first to dunk at the end gets the position. A facility to reverse these defaults is being devised. Relay can't really be regarded as joint winners, but 8am could run as a pair, or 7am could be racing to the bitter end (especially the husband and wife pairs?)     Any comment?
Also, walkers start time adjusted to 06:03, fast runners to 8:02, relay to 8:32:30

10-completions Award

In line with a tradition in LDWA events, an award has been introduced for completing the event 10 times. Awards have been made to Roy Varo , Henry Marston, Dave Carratt, Kerry Booth, Mick Cochrane, George Kay, Terry Griffiths, Andrew West, Chris Sanders, David Fox. The awards are based on my records; please let me know if there is an error (contact information below). Names get spelled differently in different years (Steve or Stephen), ladies marry, and certain names have been duplicated, easy when there were two Nigel Robinsons in one year, more difficult when there were John Whites in different years, from different clubs (which is not decisive) but different ages (which is).

Additional awards were made this year to Mick Marsters, Brian Harney, Ian O'Mara and Tom Hughes

8 Dumfries Running Club. Dumfries Running Club


On their first visit, Dumfries put up a creditable performance, with the definite disadvantage of not knowing the route.

Rooneys Rakish Rogues' dibber went astray on Stage 4; can you provide 'accutate' splits? (I've spoken to Pat, so they should be coming)
Team members: I think I have most now, except proper names for Bob's Trotters and The Christmas Puddings, and may have mis-read names for Cookie's Crew. Please check names on link for splits, and let me know if there is an error, e.g. by e-mail
