Brockenhurst parkrun #287 – 19th January 2019

The gloomy, damp morning didn't deter the 178 people who ran or jogged the course today. We welcomed 27 first timers including an enthusiastic group from Winchester parkrun and the representatives of 20 different clubs who took part.

Congratulations to the 23 who recorded new Personal Bests and to the two infrequent visitors who led the field home. Alastair Rogers ran twice in Wilverley in 2014 and today completed his hat trick of First Finishes by holding off regular Adam Jundi by just 4 seconds! Adam will now have to wait to join Alice Rudd and Chloe Woolf who are in joint 2nd on our First Finish table. In 3rd place was our First Finish leader, Frank Handy who is 9 clear with 36 First Finishes.

Our well travelled First Lady, Sian Thomas, last ran Wilverley two years ago and led the ladies home for the first time with her 3rd slowest time from the 21 different parkruns she's visited!

However both First Finishers were beaten convincingly on Age Grade scoring by Catherine Smith of NF Juniors who is still recovering from a hard fall at Southampton's Christmas Day parkrun. Catherine's 81.77% was closely followed by young Jon Pepin who scored 80.88%, only 12 seconds off his PB.

It was reassuring to see another parkrun faller equalling her PB as Caroline Barnfield overcame her wounds and bruises to complete her 89th run at Brockenhurst despite the best efforts of uncontrolled dogs!

There were two Milestones today with W10 Charlotte Rajakaruna joining the Junior 10 Club having run them all at Brockenhurst. I completed my 250th parkrun Volunteer day but can't match Charlotte's loyalty as some of those have been as Run Report Writer for Killarney parkrun!

Dog related accident

Last Saturday at Wilverley we unfortunately had our first injury due to an uncontrolled dog belonging to a member of the public.
Caroline Barnfield was running with her own dog on a short lead when the loose dog left it’s owner and tripped her.

Caroline has emailed to say:
‘I just wanted to thank other runners last Saturday, 12.01.19, especially the kind man who stopped and helped me to the finish after I was knocked over near the last T junction by a large loose dog.
I have numerous facial lacerations, a broken nose and swollen knees. I don't know how I managed to finish as I felt very dizzy and concussed. Also thank you to Mick for the first aid!

Kind regards
Caroline’

We hope that all dog walkers are aware of their responsibility to control their dogs in the Forest. However this incident shows that it is imperative that we all take great care in the presence of uncontrolled dogs.

 

Dogs in Wilverley Inclosure

Our winter course in Wilverley Inclosure is perfect for sharing parkrun with your dog as there’s plenty of space on the tracks after the first congested 100m.

However please abide by the simple rule that ‘Dogs ARE allowed at this venue but please keep ONE dog on a short lead or harness and under control throughout the event.’

If anyone is seen to be running or walking our parkrun with a loose dog please advise them to use a lead and report to the Run Director if that request is not complied with. There are many runners who are intimidated by dogs and being tripped on the gravel tracks is not an experience anyone wants.

Wilverley is a very popular area for dog walkers so please take care if you see dogs that are not under control and warn the owners VERY POLITELY that you are passing.

 

Brockenhurst parkrun #286 – 12th January 2019

Congratulations to the 34 who recorded new Personal Bests and to Adam Jundi who led the field home for the 26th time and to our double ladies Record holder Ellie Monks of Southampton AC who led the ladis home for the 6th time despite just returning from injury.

Congratulations also to Barbara Walton of Lymington Tri Club who set the highest Age Grade score with 82.59%.

Well done to Pamela Podesta who joined the 50 Club having run all but 7 at Brockenhurst and to Sophie Cotroneo who celebrated joining the Junior 10 Club with her 6th PB from her 10 runs at Brockenhurst.

Brockenhurst parkrun #285 – 05th January 2019

Our first parkrun of 2019 saw 201 people run, jog or walk the course on a cold, dry and windless day which will have contributed to the four sub 18 minute runs. We welcomed 27 first timers including visitors from as far afield as Zimbabwe with representatives of 29 different clubs taking part.

Congratulations to the 23 who recorded new Personal Bests and to Phil Mosley who set the highest Age Grade score to lead the field home for the 6th time pulling Dan Slayford of Flyers Southend to a new outright parkrun PB. To put that in perspective Dan has run 205 parkruns at 58 different venues so has started the year well. That also applies to Alice Rudd of Hardley Runners who led the ladies home for the 27th time to go equal 2nd on our First Finisher table.

Well done to Jackie Ferrier of NFR who joined the 100 Club and takes the Loyalty Award having run all but one at Brockenhurst and to Andy Freeman who joins the 50 Club.
