Brockenhurst parkrun #250 – 5th May 2018

A glorious morning for running in the New Forest saw 228 people run, jog and walk the course, of whom 63 were first timers and 30 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 25 different clubs took part. As variety is the spice of life, the run direction was reversed this week (so anti-clockwise round Wilverly)

1st Runner home was Phil Moseley in a time of 16:51, a course PB for Phil and an age graded rating of 82.20 % (the best mens age graded result of the day)

1st lady home was Alice Rudd in a time of 20:50 with an age graded rating of (71.04%). The Best ladies age grading rating goes to Barbara Walton of LTC who achieved 82.25%.

There was a milestone parkun for Tristan Chapman, who completed his 100th parkrun today.

A special mention goes to (what I believe is) our first wheelchair athlete to complete the Wilverley course, given the lumpiness of the route this was quite an achievement - however, a failure on my part, I failed to note his name to congratulate him properly, so sorry about that!
