Brockenhurst parkrun #260 – 14th July 2018

Fortunately the sun went behind the clouds for most of the 122 people who ran or jogged the course this morning although it was still very hot. We welcomed an impressive 40 first timers with visitors from as far as Jo'burg and representatives from 23 different clubs took part. One notable visitor was Alexandra Mason who has a two digit parkrun ID and has run 287 times at Bushy parkrun!

Congratulations to the 14 who recorded new Personal Bests which included Daniel Baker from SAC who led the field home for the 4th time with a superb new Brockenhurst PB of 16:36. That was also good enough to give Dan our new M25 record.

The ladies were led home for the 25th time by Alice Rudd of Hardley who closed the gap on our leading First Lady Chloe Woolf who has 27 First Finishes at Brock.

It was good to see NFR's super Vet Graham Ratcliffe back in sub 20 minute action after an enforced layoff. Graham celebrated joining the 50 Club today by setting the highest Age Grade score of over 83%. Impressive as that is it's some way short of his highest Age Grade score at Brock of 89.24%! Graham also holds our M55 and M60 records so will hopefully be back in full form shortly.

Brockenhurst parkrun #259 – 7th July 2018

As World Cup fever gripped the nation 138 parkrunners opted for the four lap course at Brockenhurst to start the day in style. It was another scorcher so well done to everyone that took part, including the volunteers! There were 40 first timers of which 6 were new to parkrun and the rest visiting Brockenhurst for the first time, and 23 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 19 different clubs took part.

The first man home was Owen Courtney, a first timer at Brockenhurst and only his second ever parkrun. The first lady was Heather Butcher, a Brockenhurst regular who also recorded a new PB. Kay Bunney topped the age grade score and also recorded a PB.

After months of careful planning Paul Gale not only joined the 100 club, but also the 25 volunteer club and it was his birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY PAUL and thanks for the cake and for volunteering. It was also great to welcome so many of your Totton Running Club friends.

Well done to the chaps who pushed the 'stag' around the course in a wheelchair - I hope you enjoy the rest of your stag weekend!

We only had 5 parkrunners who shared their first name with one of the 23 man England squad (Jack, Nick, John, Kieran, and Ashley). Shame we didn't have any Gareths or Harrys today but we did have Alison Kaines.

It's coming home!!!

Brockenhurst Parkrun #258 – 30th June 2018

It was another glorious sunny morning but even the warm conditions didn't deter a quarter of the field recording a personal best. Over the summer months our numbers are always swelled by visitors and this week was no exception - there were 21 who were visiting Brockenhurst for the first time.

We had 16 Juniors, 20 Seniors, and 91 'veterans' including 14 in the 60+ categories.

Kathryn Bailey set a PB and broke her own VW50 record and rocketed to 2nd on the Age Grade League with a close to 90% score. She led the ladies home for the 3rd time and Daniel Corner also set a PB on his 2nd First Finish.

Two juniors joined the 10 Club, David Motson and Matthew Calder-Bray, both running at Brockenhurst for the first time. Plus two new members joined the 100 Club including our Event Director's daughter Tara Anglim and Philip Duddell who takes the loyalty award with all but one of his 100 at Brock!

A big thank you to all our volunteers, your efforts are appreciated by all :)

Well done also to Adam Jundi who led the field home for the 20th time and equalled his outright parkrun PB of 3 years ago.

It would be lovely to have some more regular volunteers in the Volunteer Coordinator and Run Director roles, Please.  These roles are interesting and easy to do, always happy to show what to do.

With a lot of local races on this weekend there were 88 people who ran or jogged the course on a cool, windy morning. We welcomed 24 first timers including visitors from as far afield as South Africa along with representatives of 18 different clubs.

Congratulations to the 18 who recorded new Personal Bests which included leading lady Catherine Smith of New Forest Juniors on her 2nd First Finish. London visitor Ian Crispin celebrated joining the 50 Club today by leading the field home on his first run at Brockenhurst.

Catherine was beaten however on Age Grade scoring by regular Rosemarie Osborn of NFR but by only 0.04%! Rosemarie set an impressive 81.09% and was only 11 seconds off her PB.

Many thanks to the 18 volunteers below who made this morning's event possible and produced a perfect set of results. Thanks go not only to our regular stalwarts but to visitors David Heath and Michael O'Keefe who helped set up the course and Omid Mahmoudi who marshalled the dogleg and scanned. David ran his 353rd parkrun and has volunteered at Poole parkrun on over 250 days!!
