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

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
Additional awards were made this year to
1 more: John Cunnane Total now 8
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 tbc
First Team: RHAC, Ben Hague (c), Scott Williams (r) and Richard Parker (l), with Sharon in the background
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.
The calculation is on cumulative time.
