Waseley Wobbler

History

The Waseley Wobbler started life as the North Worcestershire Hill Race in the early 1980's as a mammoth 15 miler extending from Waseley Hills Country Park out to the Clent Hills and back.  It has since been reduced firstly to 10 miles and now to its present 8 mile format.

Runners World reviewers describe it as "challenging", "awesome", "scenic", "the perfect multi-terrain run", "bracing racing", "the CV workout of a lifetime", "mostly uphill", plus many mentions of "cake".

The Waseley Wobbler is organised by Bromsgrove and Redditch Athletic Club who are experienced in putting on successful road races.

The Course

The race starts and finishes at Waseley Hills High School, adjacent to the Country Park. It follows a challenging but picturesque route, looping round Waseley Hills Country Park before climbing through the woods towards the Lickey Hills then returning to the top of Waseley and back to the finish for a well earned medal and slice of home made cake. 

The course includes 4 major climbs in 8 country miles.  But the views from the top are worth it.  It is a serious undertaking but is suitable for runners who have completed 10k races and are looking for a new challenge.

Part of the route is on road making it suitable for trail shoes but not spikes.
