THERE was healthy Bromsgrove & Redditch Athletic Club representation at the annual Waseley Wobbler which took place on Saturday.

This is now an 8.5-mile off-road race which starts at Waseley Hills High School and Sixth Form Centre and runs over the dual carriageway and into the Rubery housing estate.

It then heads up over the Waseley Hills with a lap of the area before finishing back at the school.

Due to the recent rainfall, the course was very muddy in parts but former B&R runner Simon Lanckham rose to the challenge to cross the line first in 55.45.

He also helped his Birmingham Running, Athletics & Triathlon Club to first place in the team event.

The B&R athletes were led home by sixth placed Mark Tanner in 61.19.

Other B&R results: 13th Dean Hartshore, 64.13; 17th Anthony Warner, 65.06; 18th Adam Parr, 65 56; 19th Jack Morley, 66.32; 22nd Phil Richardson, 67.20 (1st over 60); 28th Robert Humphries, 68.26; 54th Ian Nutter, 73.16; 62nd Melanie Hepke, 75.17 (3rd over 40); 67th Carl Grinnell, 76.12; 77th Sarah Richardson, 79,24 (1st over 50); 78th Debbie Fowler, 80.04; 84th Jo Hounsell, 81.07 (1st over 60); 93rd Charlotte Ball, 85.37 (4th over 50); 107th Miriam Strbakova, 91.14.

Some 124 runners finished the race, in which the B&R men came second in the team event.
