Brockenhurst parkrun #245 – 31st March 2018

It had been raining a LOT during the week, and a number of parkruns relatively locally could not take place, which may well have swelled our numbers. Speaking of wet weather, we are likely to remain at Wilverley throughout April, as the college grounds are waterlogged, but please do keep checking for confirmation of this.

14 runners joined us for their first ever parkrun. Hopefully they’ll be back for more. James Laing from Hillingdon was the first man home in a very impressive 17:20, while Victoria Buck from Kent AC was the first lady in 20:12.

Austin Hulme, a JM10 joined the 10 club, Colin Beardshaw joined the 50 club, and David Pink ran his 300th parkrun with us.

Those runners who have volunteered at least 25 times are now marked on the results list with a little purple t-shirt logo, and it was great to see that we had 22 of these “super-volunteers” running on Saturday. A special mention goes to Steve Bennett, one of our core team, who was volunteering for the hundredth time! Please consider volunteering every so often if you haven’t already. It is great fun, and essential for us to be able to put on the parkrun at all.

This week 265 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 78 were first timers to Brockenhurst, and 33 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 36 different clubs took part. This was a record attendance, so some previously unused tokens had to be used this week.


The event was made possible by 16 volunteers:

Diana Jane DAVIS • Steve BENNETT • Dawn ROGERS • Peter LAY • Katrin PRITCHARD • Peter DOUGHTY • Marlene LETHEREN • Robbie PRITCHARD • Stuart GREEN • Rhona GOODWIN • Ronald GOODWIN • Terry NIPPRESS • Steve WILKS • Steve ANDREW • Debbie SMART • Andrew BUNNEY
