WCAC Off-road Summer League 2019 Round 4

A whopping 17 senior runners (plus four juniors) caused questions to be asked at Wepre parkrun as to the preponderance of purple and yellow. It also meant more points all round, propelling ever-present Alex into 2nd place behind Ellie, with Keely, Eloise and Deb all increasing their scores, and Cathryn, Angela and Kay all getting off the mark in the league.

Chris, Tony W and pram-pushing Richard pulled clear in the men’s top three, with Steve, Darren, Peter and Mark all adding to their overall totals, and Julian and Tony K notching their first points.

Standings are now up at the bottom of the off-road page. Next round is the even-shorter-and-hillier-than-Wepre Langley Fete race on Sunday July 7th. As the Macclesfield Harriers website says about the fete: “lots of family fun, pet show,ย BEER andย CAKE [their capitals, not mine] tents, BBQ, tug of war, live music, many stalls etc..” (after you’ve done the race, of course).

Twelve WCAC runners – the most so far in the off-road league – found out why the Wobbler is so named. The women’s team were a mere point behind the winners Chester Tri. while the scoring men packed well, inside the top 20.

Ellie, Kerry and Alex head the female rankings, with league first-timers Keely, Eloise Clare and Deb next in line. Chris, Dan, Mark, Tony, Richard and Andy are all close in the men’s league, with newcomer Steve now off the mark. Standings are now up at the bottom of the off-road page.

No dash from work for the next one, just drag yourselves out of bed for the 2nd(?) hilliest parkrun in the country, Wepre. For those of you who didn’t get enough of hilly woodland at the Wobbler, here’s your second helping, with four uphills (and two slopes) packed into 5k. More details to appear on the West Cheshire AC Road Running Facebook page….

Steve and the two Andys continue to pull away from the rest, as do Ellie and Clare, though only three points separate Claire H, Deb, Keely, Kerry and Alex. Next month marks halfway through the competiton, and year(!), so get those points in, on- and off-road over the summer.
