Brockenhurst parkrun event # 326 – 19th October 2019

Brock 326 scene

This was the beautiful scene that greeted the 214 people who ran or jogged our course on a lovely, sunny autumn morning. We welcomed 46 first timers and representatives of 28 different clubs took part.

Congratulations to the 23 who recorded new Personal Bests and to our Wilverley course Record holder M30 Simon Heath of Brighton Phoenix who led the field home for the second time in an impressive 16:33, just 20 seconds from his PB here set a year ago. Simon's outright parkrun PB is a swift 15:26 along the pan flat promenade course at Worthing so his 16:13 Wilverley Record is even more impressive as it's only 14 seconds slower than the alltime Brockenhurst Record on the College course! Simon looking remarkably unruffled after his run:

The ladies were led home for the 19th time by W45 Val Sesto in 20:56 with W30 Vicki Clarke of Hardley Runners just 7 seconds behind in a new PB for the course. Val below:

Our top Age Grade scorer for the second consecutive week was M70 Barbara Walton of Lymington Triathletes who ran 26:11 and scored 85.04%:

M35 Kris Woollard of Black Park parkrun ran his 150th but the Loyalty Award undoubtedly goes to Steve Welch who ran his 200th parkrun with every one of them at Brockenhurst!! Well done Steve:

We all know how tough the Wilverley course is with the steepness of the final hill being particularly brutal. Phil Mosley's buggy Record of 20:03 will take some beating as M40 Phil ran a parkrun PB of 16:14 in Southampton last month and he's been an Elite GB Triathlete in the past. What chance then of a 'non runner' getting round that hilly course at speed with a double buggy? M35 Jamie Lowe ran his first ever parkrun here just 3 weeks ago in 34:04 pushing his two children. Today Jamie ran a PB 26:08!!

One last Milestone today as I completed my 300th Volunteer occasion. I have a head start over most parkrun Volunteers as I have written the Killarney parkrun Run Report since a family wedding there and I've only volunteered at Brockenhurst on 197 days. I'm claimimg the 300!

Despite the rain there were 172 people who ran, jogged and walked our sheltered course. We welcomed 36 first timers and representatives of 24 different clubs took part.

The rain contributed to issues with the finish tokens after finisher 150 so if your time is vastly incorrect please email brockenhursthelpers@parkrun.com with your barcode number and correct finish position and/or time and we'll try to update your result.

Congratulations to the 15 who recorded new Personal Bests and to M20 Harry Smith of Ampthill & Flitwick Flyers RC who led the field home for the second time in an impressive 16:55 and W30 Alice Rudd of Hardley Runners who led the ladies home for an even more impressive 31st time.

Both First Finishers however were beaten convincingly on Age Grade scoring by W70 Barbara Walton of Lymington Triathlon Club who scored 84.77%. Barbara has 9 International Triathlon medals to her name so is well used to being top of the podium.

M15 Arthur Lomax was again the first Junior male in 22:06 and Josie Coggins of Lymington Athletes and Amelia Murphy of New Forest Runners were the leading Junior females having chatted together the whole way!

There were two unofficial Milestone runs today with regular Philip Duddell on 150 and my wife Jan recording her 200th:

Jan 200

Philip easily wins the Loyalty Award as he has run 149 times at Brock while Jan has been a parkrun tourist at over 50 different parkruns.

One of our first time visitors, Malcolm Price now of Lordshill Runners, is a very infrequent parkrunner having run only 35 since his first 9 years ago! Malcolm is better known as 'Mr RR10' as he has been the mainstay of our local summer off road race series which has grown to be one of the most successful evening Leagues in the country:

Please consider volunteering at least 3 times a year as there are many roles which still allow you to run.

Car sharing and verge parking ban at Wilverley Inclosure

We are extremely grateful to the Forestry Commission and Natural England for allowing parkrun in Wilverley Inclosure during the winter months.

Wilverley is a very popular area for other Forest users so please try to CAR SHARE or CYCLE if possible as we MUST allow other users to access the limited parking.

One very important rule is that there is STRICTLY NO VERGE PARKING on the access road or adjacent roads. Our Permit would be under threat if this rule is broken.

Otherwise enjoy the well maintained gravel tracks and PLEASE be very considerate towards other Forest users, particularly horse riders, cyclists and dog walkers.

 

Brockenhurst parkrun event # 324 – 05th October 2019

It was a mild and misty morning for the 15th Anniversary of parkrun and our first week back in Wilverley Inclosure. The two photos below from Russ Lomax perfectly capture the conditions:

Out on Wilverley Plain it was even more misty for the ponies:
