Results of Rowbotham's Round Rotherham

Saturday 12th October, 2019

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

Updates in progress....

This page has the updated relay team membership as advised by team managers

Relay results added (albeit requiring some additions)

2019 Preliminary results appear on the SiEntries/Sportident website

For the latter, Select Results on the Round Rotherham Run line (12 Oct). For both, select the Relay or Solo course. Usually leave category blank (or All)

Ben Hague and Sabrina Verjee
Despite very wet conditions on the day, Ben came in with an amazing time of 5 h 57 min 18 s to improve on his 2018 record of just over 6 hours

The new Hooton Roberts checkpoint was very successful, from what I heard and saw. A couple of pictures of it in operation



To update: In the individual, there were 144 participants,  of whom 33 were ladies. The 23 relay teams involved 171 participants (taking into account multiple stage runs), 92 run by ladies.
So: there were more people doing the relay than the individual
190 men, 125 women, if my calculation is correct. i.e. 40% female representation (over 50:50 in ladies favour in the relay).

Thank you all for coming, and a special thanks to all our officials and helpers

Several links currently go to holding pages

Comprehensive results progressively being added

Full individual results , Leaders, Team,
Relay, Completions, Entry List (pre-entries), Reports/Pictures

Note: to help protect against Spam, most e-mail addresses given have NOT inserted after the @ sign; human respondents should remove the 3 extra characters

Name spellings, affiliations etc in the archive and the linked results listings available from this page are based on the archive.  In general, the archive uses the spelling first used by a participant, unless the name change is permanent (e.g. when a lady marries), to avoid risk of confusion between people with similar names, e.g. Steve Walker, Steven Walker and Stephen Walker. For doppelgangers (e.g. the two Stephen Walker's who have appeared) identification text may be added to the name.    Please let me know if you are aware of any errors, to  Henry Marston   

Basic results appear on the SiEntries website (click on Round Rotherham on Previous Results quick link on the left). Now available. Additional information (completions, veteran status, etc) is to be added on this page. Split times are shown; graphical and more digestible tabular analysis is provided from this page.

Warning: In the results linked from this page, club membership is based on the entry for the archive, where for identification purposes a returning entrant who does not give a club affiliation retains previous affiliation (helping to distinguish doppelgangers). Accordingly, there will be individuals who have left a club but not declared a new club.  Here you will be listed with affiliation to your last known club.  In most cases, this is inconsequential, but may affect the Team Result. If you are listed for a team and feel you should not be, contact me  Henry Marston and I can make adjustments.

Full results (includes retirements) Added for 2019 Note: Club membership is shown for identification purposes, as this listing is primarily for the archive and is not used for calculating team results. Your club may be different from that recorded in the 'Official' results.  If you were a club member in previous years, but are now unattached, your affiliation to your former club may persist in this listing, if only to help distinguish doppelgangers.  Changes between original entry and race day may not be picked up..

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, Mick Marsters, Brian Harney, Ian O'Mara, Tom Hughes, Bob Berzins, Peter Simpson, Percy Wellor, Martyn Gaynor, Barry Harrison, David Keward, Michael Collins, Kevin Uzzell, Malcolm Coles, Philip Gwilliam, John Cunnane, Philip Elliot, Alan Yates, Julian Brown, David Shepherd, Jim Fulton, Philip Haigh, Brian Harwood, Philip Musson, Paul Sorensen, John Clarke, John Hughes, Barrie Bedford, Caroline Boyd, Shirley Hume, David Oxley, Kevin Marshall, David Egan, Marla Howard-Cutts, Pat Rooney, Dave Roberts, Alison Brind, Mike Elwell, Chris Hume, Jane Matthews, John Vernon, Les Hill, Steve Garlick, Bill Watson, Martin Dietrich, Nick Ham, Kevin Doyle, Sharon Gaytor, Lee Carratt, Judith Webb, Nigel Coates, Elaine Dee Jeremy Nottingham, Pam Baird, David Devine and Martin Payne

Additional awards were made this year to 2 more, Gary Groves and Richard Scroop(subject to rechecking).  

That's a total of 67!

20-completions Award

Roy Varo, Henry Marston, Andrew West, Terry Griffiths†, Kerry Booth, Chris Sanders and Tom Hughes have been presented with an award for reaching 20 completions (7 recipients).  

Additional awards were made this year to 1 more:  John Cunnane Total now 8
John took advantage of the 4 am start, having been timed out on his attempt last year. Congratulations, John


Two individuals have now reached 30 completions: Andrew West (who has walked round every year since the event was adapted to enable walkers to take part) and Henry Marston

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 Robinson's in one year, more difficult when there were John White's in different years, from different clubs (which is not decisive) but different DOB (which usually is). We have had 2 participants with the same name, same DOB, fortunately taking part in the same year! ;

Retirements are included with main results 

Subject to re-scrutiny of affiliation / team membership

Club membership is based on the entry for the archive, where for identification purposes a returning entrant who does not give a club affiliation retains previous affiliation (helping to distinguish doppelgangers). Accordingly, there may be individuals who have left a club but are here listed as a team member for that club.  If you are listed for a team and feel you should not be, contact me  Henry Marston and I can make adjustments.
