Trophies & Results

 
 
This is NOT a race, but....... 

From its inception in 1992, the Murray River Rowathon has awarded a perpetual trophy to the team which achieves the highest score for major non-rowing aspects of their participation.

 Named after Jack Joel, who rowed in many of the early Rowathons and was a strong supporter of a range of charities including the RFDS, the "Jack Joel" trophy rates teams on the following criteria:-

  • Organisation and paperwork
  • On-water presentation (imaginative costumes welcome!)
  • Funds raised per capita
  • etc

 

In 2005 a new trophy, named for Ian Law, who was the prime mover in the establishment of the Rowathon, was inaugurated.  This is the simple one, awarded to the crew which completes the course without rower changes (yes you can change cox but not rowers) at the three rest stops along the course.  Most teams work on a relay basis, changing some or all crew members after each leg, so this trophy is for the genuine mileage munchers.
 
 
In 2010 we introduced a new trophy, the " Col Rogers Fastest Boat" (who said it is not a race...) for those crews who want to really give it a go but don't want to or can't do the full course with out changes. Like the Ian Law trophy it will be the fastest rowing time over the course with crew changes allowed at each of the three rest stops. The time keeper will clock crews in and out at each stop and finish and will have the final decision on the winner. Col Rogers is a local Robinvale identity and has been associated with rowing in Robinvale for many years as well as rowing in and supporting the RFDS Murray Rowathon since it's inception.

In 2016 we introduced a new trophy, the "Wentworth Perpetual" trophy for rowers who want to get the pain over early and just do the first two legs as a half marathon. It will be awarded to the fastest crew with no rower changes.
In addition to your crew name on the perpetual trophy, winning crews will be presented with a specially made and engraved medal.
