Brockenhurst parkrun #278 – 17th November 2018

Despite a chilly start to the morning, this week 210 people ran, jogged or walked the Wilverley course with 2 people celebrating birthdays!

How encouraging it is to welcome new people and this week we had 43 first timers with visitors from Essex, South Wales and Hertfordshire.

Many congratulations to the 33 participants who recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 26 different clubs took part this week.

Well done to Adam Jundi for finishing first (for an impressive 25th time!) in 17:37 and to Sharon Singer of Canicross New Forest in 2nd place with a time of 17:41 as our first female finisher for the 12th time (congratulation also to Sharon's furry running companion!)

Sharon's assisted run gave her the highest Age Grade score of 86.99% with the top unassisted score once again going to Catherine Smith of NF Juniors.

We had Milestone runs today from two runners who have completed all of their parkruns at Brockenhurst - that's loyalty! Well done to Mark Bockle who joined the 50 Club and to Samuel Cooper who joined the Junior 10 Club. There was also an unofficial Milestone from Matty Tomlinson of Poole parkrun who completed his 150th run.

A HUGE thank you to everyone.

As always, parkrun is only possible due to the volunteers who offer their time and for which we are very grateful - thank you to all the 16 volunteers who made today's event happen.

This week 197 people ran, jogged or walked the hills of Wilverley on an unseasonably warm but beautiful morning - ideal conditions for running.

It was lovely to welcome 33 first time parkrunners as well as visitors from as far afield as Cardiff and Indonesia! There were representatives of 26 different clubs taking part and congratulations to those 24 runners who recorded new Personal Bests.

Well done also to our first finisher, Mark Spiller of Bishops Stortford RC in a time of 18:32 - one of his slowest but not bad for his first time at Wilverley! Congratulations too to Val Sesto as first lady for the 15th time in 20:12.

Brockenhurst parkrun #276 – 03rd November 2018

This week 190 people ran, jogged or walked the course on a glorious autumn morning with the temperature around 13C. We welcomed 30 first timers including visitors from as away as Northern Ireland. Representatives of 26 different clubs took part.

Congratulations to the 25 who recorded new Personal Bests and to Jappas du Preez of Hardley Runners who led the field home on his first run at Wilverley. Jappas has just broken the British Army record at the Kona, Hawaii World Ironman Championships in 9hrs 21m and despite temperatures of 35C ran a 3:21 marathon to finish. Hopefully he'll be back at Wilverley when he's fully recovered from the Ironman!

First lady home for the 8th time was W50 Catherine Smith of NF Juniors and Catherine also set the highest Age Grade score again with almost 81%. Well done Catherine and keep showing the youngsters a clean pair of heels!

With Jo Murphy in New York for the Marathon her child minders were down from North Wales and mum Margaret Fitzgerald broke her own W80 record while daughter Amelia broke her PB for the Wilverley course. Hope that Jo can follow their examples.

There were no 'official' Milestone runs today but regular Dave McElhenny of Hardley Runners deserves special mention for his 200th parkrun.

There are likely to be a couple of results adrift in the 145+ range so please email brockenhurstoffice@parkrun.com if your time is hugely in error.

Brockenhurst parkrun #275 – 27th October 2018

Winter finally showed itself this weekend, frost on the fields and lots of shivering runners at the start line for todays parkrun. 208 people ran, jogged and walked the course in reverse this week, of whom 56 were first timers and 31 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 30 different clubs took part.

With 31 PBs recorded this week this matches last week 31 PB's, (albeit this weeks parkrun had a larger field), it looks as though the course is equally/challenging whichever direction it is run in.

The first runner home was Callum JOHNSON of Hardley Runners in a time of 18:33, setting himself a new course PB in the process.

Catherine SMITH of New Forest Junior AC was first lady home for the 7th time in 21:32. Catherine also recorded the best ladies age graded result of 79.80%. Well done Catherine for your clean sweep in terms of places and age graded results today.

Best male and overall age graded result of the day goes to M11 Jon PEPIN, who was 2nd overall and recorded a excellent score of 81.10 % for his 18:52 minute PB!

In terms of milestones well done to Shivani and Sanvi THAGADUR, both of whom recorded their 100th Parkrun this weekend. Very well done both!
