Brockenhurst parkrun #252 – 19th May 2018

The final Wilverley parkrun this season saw the early mist burn away to give perfect conditions for the 136 people who ran or jogged the course from the top of the first hill. We welcomed 21 first timers along with representatives of 23 different clubs and visitors from as far afield as Johannesburg!

Congratulations to the 22 who recorded new Personal Bests including Kathy Bailey of Winchester and DAC who led the ladies home for the 2nd time and broke the W50 record (set at the College!) by almost a minute. Despite our hilly course with two 180 turns Kathy also set our 4th highest ever Age Grade score of 88.63%!!

Paul Fauset from Sheffield led the men home for the first time on his 4th annual visit.

One record that was broken this morning was the 22 minute late start for two of our first timers who will easily set new PBs next time!

We'll be returning to the College course nex week for our 5th Anniversary run and know that some of you prefer other parkruns for the summer. Good luck with those and we hope to see you back at Wilverley in the autumn.
