Results of Rowbotham's Round Rotherham

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

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 RRRresults   

Basic results will appear on the RHAC website  (direct link)

Sorry for the delay in publishing results; there was a computer problem on the day.

The archive has now been updated and splits are being analysed.

If you know the identity of the unknown runner (7am starter, finished in 10 h 28 min) please Email  results

Split times in traditional format

Split times in WinSplits Online
A number of queries have arisen within the splits analysis, to be checked.  Current Best Guess is shown.

WinSplits is commercial software that helps analysis of split times from events

For each runner, position, name, club, finish time, time behind the winner and times and positions at each checkpoint are shown. There are two time rows. The upper row contains the split times, i.e. times between two subsequent checkpoints, and the lower row contains the total times, i e accumulated times from the start to a certain checkpoint. The positions are displayed within parentheses, on the upper row the ranking for the stage and on the second row the current race position.  The appearance of the split time list can be altered by changing the settings at the bottom of the page. Read more about this (and other) topics in the WinSplits Help pages.


Colours are used to make certain information in the table appear more distinctly.

red text colour Red text colour indicates best split time and total time, respectively.
blue text colour Blue text colour indicates that the split time or total time is among the three best.
grey, italic text colour Interpolated times
pink background colour Pink background colour means that time was lost on this stage, time taken was 25% longer than expected (taking overall time into account). See WinSplits Help for more information. 
light yellow background colour The light yellow hue of the background of the upper time row for each runner indicates that the times are split times.
darker yellow back colour The somewhat darker yellow hue of the background of the lower of the time rows for each runner indicates that the times are total times (or real times if that setting is active).

See Bonus Content which presents data graphically as time behind fastest for stage.  A straight declining line is ideal (you were that bit slower than the fastest).  A step down shows (for example) a particularly slow stage.

Select competitors (All or specific people, by clicking on them).  The graph shows how each competitor has lost time, compared to the fastest time for each stage.  WinSplits has split times for retirees, but not SplitsBrowser.

Retirements are included with main results, showing Last Place Recorded

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, Martin 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, Paul Sorensen, John Clarke, John Hughes and Barrie Bedford.

Additional awards were made this year to Caroline Boyd and Shirley Hume, the first two ladies to reach this target, plus Philip Musson and Brian Harwood (subject to rechecking).  

That's a total of 39. 

20-completions Award

Roy Varo, Henry Marston, Andrew West and Terry Griffiths had previously been presented with an award for reaching 20 completions.   Kerry Booth and Chris Sanders joined the band this year.

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). 

Ray Matthews of Maltby tackled a solo run of the 50-mile Round Rotherham course before returning at dawn on the Saturday morning for the official event and a chance to repeat the feat.   He therefore covered 100 miles in a 24-hour period, raising funds for the charity, Headway, in the process.  Unfortunately, Ray, this only counts as one completion with respect to the Completions award.  Your total is now 5

HELP:- I need to confirm team members, who ran which leg.  Are these names correct?

Please e-mail me to advise of errors.  The  Split is probably the easiest to check.
