Brockenhurst parkrun #261 – 21st July 2018

It was another very hot morning for the 115 people who ran, jogged or walked our bone hard course although we were fortunate to have some cloud cover. We welcomed 37 first timers including tourists from as far afield as Melbourne, Adelaide and South Africa. Representatives of 18 different clubs took part.

Congratulations to the 20 who recorded new Personal Bests including the leading lady, Catherine Smith of New Forest Juniors who dipped under 21 minutes for the first time. Catherine had a great race with Samantha Bulmer who also set a new PB only 5 seconds behind.

Catherine also set the highest Age Grade score once again with an impressive 82.09%.

Our leading man was first time visitor Andrew Hutson from Hackney Marshes parkrun.
