This was a very good event and an excellent qualifying 50 event for the 100. Thanks to all you long suffering helpers and marshalls who waited for me and my friend way past the closing time! It's a very pleasant countryside stroll ( well, that's what they thought I was doing) but well worth it.

And a special hug to Henry for walking me round and giving me the history of the area he has grown up in and seen all the changes. See you next year Henry. Promise I will be (a little) quicker!

And yes got my qualifier at last! Role on the Red Rose!

I rather fancy that posh hotel to stay at the end of the 100 with sauna and jacuzzi,,,

This is one of the best value events on the calendar. Not only is it one of the cheaper 50's but it includes a wicking t shirt in the price. Food is adequate but take some of your own just in case.

The food on RRR is not brilliant but adequate. On the plus side there are 7 CP 😀 I normally take some extra food with me just in case.
It is a very good event. The early start is a joy compared to some 50s which don't start until the afternoon.

There's always been plenty of food - just like an LDWA event. The mid-way stop is usually soup and bread. You don't have much time to complete it as a walker but I think that's the only downfall. And (for the early checkpoints) you need to watch out for the relay runners who go charging past at a right rate of knots! Enjoy!

Since Round Rotherham is aimed largely at runners and isn't an LDWA event, I'm not quite sure what to expect. Can anyone who has done it before tell me what we can expect in the way of food at checkpoints? The route description mentions food at the 25-mile checkpoint, but doesn't say of what sort - does that mean that there is no food at all at the other checkpoints?
