Round Rotherham Run

(Rowbotham's Round Rotherham)

Saturday 12 October 2019

50 miles (80.5 km); 2,625 feet (800 m) of ascent

A trail run around Rotherham following the Rowbotham's Round Rotherham footpath mostly over farmland and rural areas on sign-posted paths, bridleways and roads with very little ascent. The weather was about perfect for running although recent rain made the going a bit muddy underfoot in places.

Starters: 145

Finishers: 132

Retired: 13

First Man: Ben Hague; Rotherham Harriers and AC; M; 5:57:18

First Lady: 6th overall; Sabrina Verjee; F; 7:47:41

Mick Cochrane: 57th; Dark Peak Fell Runners; MV70; 11:06:56

Steven Jones: 61st; Dark Peak Fell Runners; MV50; 11:25:39

Stephanie Watts: 65th; Dark Peak Fell Runners; F; 11:35:53

Last year Ben Hague of Rotherham Harriers and AC set a new course record by quite a margin. This year he beat his own record to bring the course record below 6 hours with an impressive time of 5 hours 57 minutes and 18 seconds. That represents an improvement of 3 minutes and 34 seconds.

Mick Cochrane was the first MV70 finisher out of 10 starters (2 DNF and 8 finishers). This was despite having a calf injury early on in the race.

This was the last race in the Runfurther 2019 series.
