With the full car parking area available again, we reverted back to the regular start line for today's run. Whilst there is plenty of parking available here (No verge parking please) we do recommend car sharing, cycling and running, where possible, to our beautiful Wilverley course.
Visitors from far and near joined us today, Gosport, Andover, Ipswich, Telford and Newport, Wales. Welcome All!
Local running stalwarts Marion Frewin and Mario Sheath ( many apologies for messing up my intro to you two!) celebrated their 100th parkrun with a feast of gluten free cakes, flapjack and chocolates for all after the run. Many thanks and congratulations on your achievements.
Thomas James led in a close pack of 4 lead runners and achieved a new PB of 17.32. Well done Thomas.
Well done also to Duncan Cooper of Poole AC who set an impressive 85.5% to head the Age Grade scoring and to Valeria Sesto who led the ladies home for the 17th time.
One of our youngest runners (and regular Volunteer) Bea Murphy, had her 6th birthday this week and decided to celebrate by running a New PB in 35.45. Well Done Bea!
A very nice red hoodie was left at the finish, it is safely with some other 'lost' items from previous Brockenhurst parkruns. Please contact us to reclaim.
