    It was a fine race and although a CS rivalled the great Yorkshire BL, the Three Peaks

    Nay! Better than that overhyped trail race for southern tourists some would say and, as I recall, your kit check was much more rigorous although you did allow runners discretion on which leg they wore the obligatory single wellington.

    ...and she was in first place until she hit the bracken from hell on the final climb onto Melbreak. Not bad considering it was only her 3rd ever fell race.

    Just seen this: the 2017 Waseley Wobbler wesults show a wather wemarkable winning margin for a woman; similar to that for Helen Fines at Llyn y Fan 2010 (see the earlier post by The_Saint), but in a much bigger field: http://www.waseleywobbler.com/results2017.pdf

    The Waseley Wobbler is the successor to the North Worcestershire Hill Race (which actually gets a mention in the appendix to Studmarks on the Summits)
    In his lifetime he suffered from unreality, as do so many Englishmen.
