Results of Rowbotham's Round Rotherham

Saturday 1st October, 2022

Winners: Kevin Hoult and Michelle Harle (running elsewhere)


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


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

2022 Basic results appear on the SiEntries/Sportident website

For the SiEntries/Sportident website link, Select Results on the Round Rotherham Run line (1 Oct). Select the Relay or Solo course. Usually leave category blank (or All)

The new Hooton Roberts checkpoint was again very successful, getting lots of plaudits on FaceBook, where you can see many tales of what happened on the day.

Summary: In the individual, there were 137 participants,  of whom 37 were ladies.
The 19 relay teams involved 142 participants (taking into account multiple stage runs), 82 run by ladies.

70 stages run by men, 82 by women, if my calculation is correct. i.e. 54% female representation.

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

email links on this page need an obvious edit to make it more difficult for scammers to obtain the email address and send spam.
Please send all enquiries to making the obvious substitution.

Comprehensive results are progressively being added - main ones have been done

Some links may go to holding pages, a 404 error or 2021 results, but I think now mostly resolved - please email me if not

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.

Subject to revision

If appropriate, please confirm your details: name spelling, club (if any), DOB, location (town/city/county),
previous number of completions of RRR (assumed 0) etc to
Henry Marston by order of dibbing at start and finish

Full results (includes retirements) Added for 2022

Equal position is indicated where people start, finish and seem to go round together - as indicated by times within about 20 s at the Start, Finish and (to test keeping together) CP5 (Firbeck)

Updated after realising Andrew Hedison (24th, in 11 h 05 min) had been left out for technical reasons, and a small adjustment for start time in h:mm:ss rather than h:mm

pdf version of the Full results Click on the link, either to view it or right click, Save Target As and then print it   Added for 2022

Note: Club membership is as declared in the SiEntries entry in tables on or linked from this page.
However, in the archives, History files, a returning entrant who does not give a club affiliation retains previous affiliation (helping to distinguish doppelgangers).

On the other hand, the participant's first name given in these tables is the version used in the archive.
For orderly operation of the archive, in general, the first version of a name provided is used for future years.
Thus, we have had Rob Thompson and Robert Thompson, and they will keep these names in the archive even if the enter with they other version.
Where 2 people have entered with the same name, e.g. the three Stephen Walkers, an addition to the name is made to distinguish them, permanently.
A change of surname, e.g. when a woman marries, can be changed through the archive, if I am advised, to retain the record of past efforts.

Split times and race analysis, alternatively as a .pdf table - - Added for 2022
Pace as a table, with leg ranking - included with splits

  Graphical Analysis using WinSplits and SplitsBrowser (easier to interpret, and how to interpret them.) Not added for 2022

Team result

Where several members of a team finish together, the scorer may have an equal position to a non-scorer - selection is by order of dibbing at start and finish.
Losing out were Philip Haigh (Kimberworth Striders) and Sharon Cassidy who finished with Louise Darby and Teresa Hubery  
I have been advised that Nadine Allott is a member of Rotherham Running Community who come in as second team and first Ladies Team.
Sorry, Team Manvers, 19 seconds down (traditional points method gives the same result)

Pos Cumulative Club Scorers
1 33h 34min 06s Kimberworth Striders Andrew Hedison, Brian Miranda and Patrick Rooney
2 34h 42min 22s Rotherham Running Community Adelle Marsden, Sarah Millns and Nadine Allott
3 34h 42min 41s Team Manvers Shannon Hardcastle, Louise Darby and Teresa Hubery
4 43h 49min 45s 100 Marathon Club David Oxley, Judith Webb and Andy Hoddle

The calculation is based on cumulative time.

20-completions Award

Roy Varo, Henry Marston, Andrew West, Terry Griffiths, Kerry Booth, Chris Sanders, Tom Hughes, John Cunnane and Mick Cochrane have been presented with an award for reaching 20 completions (9 recipients).  

An additional award was made this year to 2 more: David Oxley and Jim Fulton Total now 11


Andrew West, Henry Marston and Kerry Booth 

No additional awards were made this year.  Total now 3

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! ;



Make-up of Relay Teams is given in the link. The table has been updated
Please check and inform me of any changes not so far advised.
