Now with a cult following, we’re back! Helsby RC would like to invite you all to join us again for this year’s Wobbler. It is a mid-week memorial race set up after the club lost one of its well-loved members Robbie Webster. The race is over and around Frodsham hill. It’s all trails, but with the sort of ascent, you’d normally find in a fell race. So if you’re curious about fell racing, love a challenge, or just need a bit of extra hill work then come along and give it a go!

This is an open race – last year we had 146 wobblers. We were pleased that nobody got lost and everyone that could make it back to the clubhouse afterwards enjoyed a social. The route is fully marked and marshalled and we have a show-up and pay on the day policy.

This year it will again be an open race and we are inviting all local clubs and runners to come and have a go. It’s only 8.4km (5.2 miles) yet it packs in 370m (1220ft) of ascent – it’ll leave you wobbling!


We have perpetual trophies up for grabs – (1st male & female, 1st male and female Vet’, male and female Team prize (position of first three runners count) as well as a modest prize for the various age categories.

Stop Press! We now have a Facebook page, so in addition to being able to sign up for mail drops you can find links to pictures and all things Wobbling here: https://www.facebook.com/RobbieWebstersWobbler/
