Brockenhurst parkrun #251 – 12th May 2018

We were very concerned to hear during the week that Wilverley Plain car park was closed off for repair for at least 9 days. Although the College course has now dried out it has not yet been marked so we decided to move across to the Wilverley Inclosure entrance and car park. That provides for a better start and finish area but entails two doglegs. Despite the change and two local races tomorrow there were 107 people who ran or jogged the course on a dry and cool morning. We welcomed 20 first timers including tourists from Plymouth and London and representatives of 17 different clubs took part.

We congratulate the 11 who recorded new Personal Bests despite the doglegs and Phil Mosley who led the field home for the 4th time in another impressive sub 17 minute run for a successive week. Valeria Sesto made up for a minute late start by leading the ladies home for the 14th time.

Both of our leaders however were convincingly beaten on Age Grade scoring by first time visitor Austin Soanes of Aldershot who scored 86.4% on our hilly course.

Well done to our regular runners who set Milestones today with Matt Murphy joining the 100 Club and taking the Murphy family total to 414 runs. David King joined the 50 Club having run all but 3 at Brockenhurst and young George Weller joined the Junior 10 Club.

We'll probably have to use the Wilverley Inclosure entrance again next Saturday so watch for News and our Facebook page.
