Date: 16/10/2013


DVC Sports is excited to announce that it will be hosting the ‘Rowbotham's Round Rotherham’ marathon event for the 7th consecutive year. The trail kicks off at the sports centre, based at Dearne Valley College in Manvers, and runners will undertake the vast 50 mile trail around the Rotherham borough.

The sporting event commences early morning on Saturday, 19th October and hundreds of runners and walkers from across the UK and Europe, including athletes from Switzerland, Poland and Sweden, will descend upon DVC Sports, making this an exciting international sports event.

The route consists of a variety of different terrains, with part of the track covering the rural areas of the South Yorkshire Forest, and the 50-mile route passes through Elsecar, Rother Valley and Maltby, before making its return back to DVC Sports.

For some of the athletes coming from further afield, DVC Sports will remain open on Friday evening to accommodate for those participants who have chosen to camp out at the sports centre, in preparation for the early start on Saturday morning.

Speaking about the event, DVC Sports Manager, Shaun Woodward said:

“DVC Sports are proud to support this prestigious event and host the Round Rotherham Run for the 7th year, which is a great accolade for this facility. It is an annual international event, and we are welcoming runners of all levels from across Europe, making it an exciting event for both DVC Sports, and the local community.”
