Brockenhurst parkrun Event number 332 7th December 2019

My 2nd stint as Run Director, and I don't think we lost anyone, so I count that as a win.

The weather was pleasant, no wind, no rain, and fairly mild, though still muddy underfoot.

Mentions to Tracy Linney who celebrated her 100th parkrun with us by bringing some tubs of celebrations to share for the occasion.
First buggy home was in 21.31 with Stuart Bowers, not sure if this is a course buggy record, (will do some digging) but congratulations regardless.

This week 124 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 11 were first timers and 12 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 21 different clubs took part.

Well done to everyone and thanks to those who help make the job easier to do, and that's all the volunteers.

Brockenhurst parkrun Event #330 – 23rd November 2019

A good turnout at Brockenhurst parkrun today, helped somewhat by cancellation of other local parkruns and possibly even by the prospect of running our winter course in reverse for a change. Happily the rain held off for the start of the race, although judging by the state of some of the runners at the finish line the trails must have been pretty muddy in places :)

210 runners completed the course today with Adam JUNDI coming in first with a time of 17:18, closely followed Tim ANETTS of Hardley runners in a time of 17:24. 3rd male was Mauro LANFRANCHI with a Brockenhurst debut time of 18:19

First place lady was Valeria SESTO in a time of 20:09, with Gemma RUSSHARD of Lymington Tri Club coming home in a time of 21:05. 3rd Lady home was Nicola ROPER with a time of 21:48

From a milestone point of view, a big well done to Matthew TANNER of Hardley Runners for his 100th Parkrun, Steve HULL recorded his 350th and Alan HORSWELL his 300th. We also had 29 first timers today, so well don to all.

In terms of age graded results, best female score goes to Val Sesto with 79.57% age graded, whilst best male score went to Malcolm RENYARD with 79.07% age grade

Brockenhurst parkrun Event #329 – 16th November 2019

Today’s parkrun was a raw day with a north wind making the start area feel like Siberia. Probably good for running fast times though in order to keep warm.

Well done to Adam Jundi who led the field home for his 40th time. Gemma Russhard from Lymington Triathlon Club led the ladies home for the 5th time.

Both First Finishers however were beaten on Age Grade scoring by Rosemarie Osborn from New Forest Runners who set 79.87%.

This week 190 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 35 were first timers and 22 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 21 different clubs took part.

Brockenhurst parkrun event #328 – 09th November 2019

Thank you for our report below from Mark Galpin:

Well today I ventured to the New Forest National Park to continue my tourism streak, this being number 16 on my tour of Southern England. Yesterday I contacted Gail and offered to be the run reporter for the run. If I can manage this job anybody can.

On Thursday I had a couple of words on facebook to see if I could muster a friend or two to join me of which one decided to join me on our short trek from Poole. I was advised about the oncoming weather that was forecast and it might not of been my brightest idea on what turned out to be a rather chilly but sunny morning also seeing my first real ice in a couple of places. Fortunately the wet stuff arrived after our run was completed.

Having said hello to Sue (the first time Run Director) just to say that I was here I tried my best to get/keep warm also hearing from one of the other volunteers about how hard it pinning the notices around as it was so cold on their fingers.

I am a lazy runner, in that I hardly ever do any stretching exercises before I run. Well today that included stretching the 50 year old hamstrings (that surprised them) and even a little jog over Wilverley Plain. I was even tempted to retire back into my warm car.

There was a little warning about a couple of sticks on the course from the course checker and also that the hills might be a little slippery. After the introductions we were off, well I had a slight delay as early in the run I thought it was a good idea to step on a Nordic Walkers pole (sorry again). As the sides of the trail were a little muddy I should of worn my other trail shoes as I went past a number of runners going through a bit of mud.

Once I got going and easily passed my friend early on I enjoyed the course amongst the trees and the hidden secrets of two hills, what do you expect when you go down a couple of them you will have to go up again at some point! The one thing that got me was how cold it was even after running for 2 miles all of my finger tips were blue; I only wish that I was kidding in this! My gloves were keeping nice and warm on the radiator at home.

I had seen the map but not really looked at the summary online and I thought the first turn was a right one; imagine my surprise going round the course in what I thought was the reverse direction. Have to say that I am happy to of completed my 3rd quickest parkrun ever, except for my poor fingers. i came home in 99th place smack in the middle!

My friend that I brought along agreed that he will be coming back too even with the couple of hills that he’s not a fan of. Due to a number of things he is not able to get out as often as he would like, there was a time that I was always following Matt across the finish line. It was a surprise to bump into a runner I’ve not seen since the summer at Upton so great effort Clive.

Kind regards,

Mark

Congratulations to our First lady home, Gemma Russhard from Lymington Tri Club (20:39) and to our First runner home Philip Moseley (17:13) from New Forest Runners who had the top Age graded score of 81.7% today.

Brockenhurst parkrun event # 327 – 26th October 2019

It was a warm but windy morning for the 170 people who ran, jogged or walked our sheltered course, of whom 44 were first timers and representatives of 27 different clubs took part.

Well done to the 15 who recorded new Personal Bests including M11 Jon Pepin who ran a 17:49 course PB to lead the field home for the 2nd time. Jon was just 9 seconds in front of M15 Callum Olden of New Forest Runners who also set a new PB.

W35 Gemma Russhard of Lymington Triathletes led the ladies home for the 3rd time in 20:34 just 7 seconds in front of W45 Val Sesto.

Despite Jon's great PB he was beaten on Age Grade scoring by W70 Barbara Walton of Lymington Triathletes who set an impressive 85.04% score.

Our first Junior lady was W15 Lucy Hoseason of Stragglers.

We had just one official Milestone walk today from W55 Sandra Jurd who is a Nordic walker with a PB of 36:42 on the flatter Blandford course! She and husband Mike took it slightly easier today for her 100th parkrun but still finished in front of many of our runners:

327 Sandra Jurd 100

There was however another 100 Milestone today from regular M75 Mike Clarke of Hardley Runners below. Mike has run a total of 107 parkruns but today he made it to 100 Age Category First Places which is a very impressive record, particularly as he's been battling with injury for months! Mike has only run at one other parkrun, Crissy Field San Francisco, for which his M70 Record of 23:08 set way back in September 2016 still stands! Keep it going Mike.
