Brockenhurst parkrun #246 – 07th April 2018

The 198 people who ran, jogged or walked the course today enjoyed a dry window between the showers on a mild spring morning. We welcomed a huge 51 first timers with representatives of 31 different clubs taking part.

Congratulations to the 23 who recorded new Personal Bests and to two of our regular First Finishers, Adam Jundi and Valeria Sesto. Adam led the field home for the 16th time and Vale led the ladies home for the 13th.

Vale's training for the Comrades marathon must be on track as she also set the highest Age Grade score of 81.80% and a new W45 record.

Well done to our regular Nordic walker Sandra Jurd who celebrated joining the 50 Club in the company of husband Mike who also used walking poles for a change.

There were two other Milestone runs with one of our Run Directors, Charles Fox, hitting 200 runs and young Finn Aplin joining the Junior 10 Club.

We welcomed our first Visually Impaired runner, Martin Sales of Polegate Plodders, who sped around our lumpy course in 26 minutes with his guide Debbie Hulme of NFR.
