Race Date: Sunday 2nd November 2014
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.
A well organised, friendly race on a flat and fast route, but the absence of promised post race chip butties was noticeable!
