Brockenhurst parkrun #278 – 17th November 2018

Despite a chilly start to the morning, this week 210 people ran, jogged or walked the Wilverley course with 2 people celebrating birthdays!

How encouraging it is to welcome new people and this week we had 43 first timers with visitors from Essex, South Wales and Hertfordshire.

Many congratulations to the 33 participants who recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 26 different clubs took part this week.

Well done to Adam Jundi for finishing first (for an impressive 25th time!) in 17:37 and to Sharon Singer of Canicross New Forest in 2nd place with a time of 17:41 as our first female finisher for the 12th time (congratulation also to Sharon's furry running companion!)

Sharon's assisted run gave her the highest Age Grade score of 86.99% with the top unassisted score once again going to Catherine Smith of NF Juniors.

We had Milestone runs today from two runners who have completed all of their parkruns at Brockenhurst - that's loyalty! Well done to Mark Bockle who joined the 50 Club and to Samuel Cooper who joined the Junior 10 Club. There was also an unofficial Milestone from Matty Tomlinson of Poole parkrun who completed his 150th run.

A HUGE thank you to everyone.

As always, parkrun is only possible due to the volunteers who offer their time and for which we are very grateful - thank you to all of the 16 volunteers who made today's event happen.
