Race report by Ben Jones

Sunday saw the 16th running of the Rotherham Canal Race, with a record turnout of 116 runners taking part in the 5 mile out and back run along the Canal Towpath from the New York Stadium turning at Halfpenny Bridge.

3 Striders, Dawn Jackson, Stuart Jones and Ben Jones made the trip, the Jones’ returning to the New York Stadium a day after witnessing the Boro’s 3-0 trouncing of Steve Evans’ Miller Men.

Kimberworth’s Arron Larkin was the first finisher in 28:41 holding off Barnsley’s Rich Spooner and canine companion Ben Ben.  First lady home was Elizabeth Champion of Kingstone in 34:31.

P Name Cat Time
5 Ben Jones M 29:47
52 Stuart Jones M50 38:17
89 Dawn Jackson F40 44:23

A well organised, friendly race on a flat and fast route, but the absence of promised post race chip butties was noticeable!
