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 it’s 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 club house afterwards enjoyed a social. The route is fully marked and marshaled 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/
