Brockenhurst parkrun #268 – 08th September 2018

After a cloudy and cool start the sun came out for the 145 people who ran, jogged and walked the course today. Due to the New Forest Marathon weekend we welcomed 57 first timers including parkrun tourists from all around the country. Representatives of 28 different clubs took part.

Congratulations to the 23 who recorded new Personal Bests and to the two young first time visitors, M15 Matthew Raynor of Reading AC and W18 Serena O’Connor of Poole Runners who lead the field home. Matthew also set a new parkrun PB and Serena broke our W18 record.

Both of our First Finishers were beaten however on Age Grade scoring by local Jacqueline Jenkins of Littledown Harriers who scored a very impressive 89.65% to equal her own W75 record.

Jacqueline also moves to second on our Age Graded League table and we wish her well for the New Forest Half tomorrow.

There were 3 Milestone runs today with Michael Dobson from Banbury parkrun joining the 100 Club and first time visitor Duncan Gordon from Buckingham and Vivienne Baxter joining the 50 Club. Vivienne takes the loyalty award having run all but one at Brockenhurst.

Brockenhurst parkrun #267 – 01st September 2018

The 96 people who ran or jogged the course today were treated to a cool start with dew on the grass but it soon warmed up under a cloudless sky. We were honoured by the attendance of local Luke Sinnott who has just returned from the Para Athletics World Championships in Berlin with a medal in his least favourite event! Luke impressed everyone by his ability to handle the tight turns on wet grass on his long sprinting blades. His main event is the long jump which is an awesome skill on blades and we wish him well in his ambitions for the Tokyo Olympics.
Our neighbouring Junior parkrun at New Milton might soon be graced with his attendance along with his young son.

We welcomed 17 first timers including prolific parkrun Tourist Colin Dinwoodie from Bushy who has run at 186 different parkruns amongst his 383 runs! Representatives of 15 different clubs took part.

Congratulations to the 11 who recorded new Personal Bests and to Adam Jundi who led the field home for the 23rd time and first time visitor Lindsay Russell-Smith who led the ladies home. Lindsay has run 29 different parkruns with Brock her 3rd fastest, only 21 seconds from her PB.

Both First Finishers however were beaten convincingly on Age Grade scoring by our stalwart Super Vet Caroline Woodford who set an impressive 83.73%.

One of the joys of parkrun is it's inclusivity and we had a great example with two very different runners finishing just 13 seconds apart. Regular M70 Roy van Hal of Hardley Runners returned to running a year ago after a long period of injury and was very pleased with his 39.02 PB. Six year old Spoorthi Kogunde was visiting from London and completed her first ever parkrun looking very comfortable. Keep it going both.
