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….
