Brockenhurst parkrun is back on 04 September

We are very pleased to announce that Brockenhurst parkrun will return to Wilverley Inclosure this Saturday 04 September.
However our Permit from Forestry England restricts our parking in Wilverley Plain and Wilverley Inclosure car parks to a maximum of 100 vehicles. It is critical that participants and Volunteers car share or arrive by bike or on foot. If you are unable to do that please use another local car park or parkrun.
Wilverley Inclosure is a very special location and we are very fortunate to be able to parkrun there. The future of Brockenhurst parkrun is in your hands so please arrange to car share.

 

International Women’s Day park run Celebration – Saturday 7 March

Join us on Saturday 7 March 2020 on our Wilverley course in Brockenhurst, the day before International Women's Day, in a celebration of female participation at parkruns all around the world. Why not bring along a female friend, colleague or family member and walk, jog, run or volunteer together!

 

Brockenhurst parkrun event #305 – 25th May 2019

It was quite a special day today, as it marked the sixth anniversary of our inaugural run. It was a lovely sunny morning, with a slight breeze, probably a bit warm for our runners. There were some really good times nevertheless, in particular by our first man home, who was visiting the New Forest on his stag week-end Alex finished in an impressive 16:31 which puts him 5th on the all time fastest finishers’ table.

Natasha Griffiths was first lady home in 20:18 - really impressive for a JW11-14.

Alan Graham scored 82.89% age graded, the highest this week.

This week 166 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 51 were first timers and 30 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 22 different clubs took part.

Brockenhurst parkrun #302 – 4th May 2019

Well, the weather held out for the 146 attendees of this morning's Brockenhurst parkrun, now back at its summer home of Brockenhurst College although it was still pretty cold in the shade - not quite summer yet. There were 43 first timers and 20 new Personal Bests and the run was enjoyed by representatives of 23 different clubs.

A number of runners didn't have their barcodes and so they are currently spaces in the results however, if you wish you may email brockenhurst@parkrun.com with your barcode number and we will try and add you in. Please, please do try and remember your barcodes as, it makes our 'job' much easier, even if you can get the number up on a phone. Thank you.

There were two impressive milestones; Marian Oates joined the '100 Club' and Mark Riding has now reached an astounding 200 parkruns - HUGE congrats to both and thank you Marian for the sweets!

Top results were provided by Adam Jundi as the first home for the 33rd time with an impressive 17:18 and first time visitor Gabriel Carnwath as first lady with 20:34.

Congratulations to Rhona Goodwin of New Forest Runners who broke her own W80 record and set the highest Age Grade score.

Brockenhurst parkrun #270 22nd September 2018

Slightly overcast and threatening drizzle, but otherwise a fine morning for our 270th Brockenhurst Parkrun today. Only 1 more Saturday at the college before we return to our winter, slightly lumpier course in Wilverly.

A big well done to the 84 people who ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 7 were first timers and 17 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 11 different clubs took part.

Henry Harris was 1st male home in his last Brock Parkrun for a while as he goes off to university in Leeds, so we will see if three years of student living slows him down :)

Ellie Farrow was first lady in a time of 19:30 and was 4th overall. Very well run Ellie.

A big thank you to all our volunteers who made today possible, as always our event is only made possible by our volunteers so please come and chat to anyone in a hi-viz/tabbard at one of our runs, or via social media and email - it can be great fun and very rewarding. Honest :)

Spring is finally here - #248 Brockenhurst (at Wilverley Inclosure)

Dear Brockenhurst parkrun and Dear Spring,

Today is the best example of why run, at a most glorious place in the most glorious weather. A friend-made-through-parkrun and I had travelled from Gosport to *do* the winter route and we left with enormous happy smiles.

Spring, you have been very dilatory this year, much like my progression back to speedy 5ks. In fact, we have both gone backwards at times. However, the tiny, new green leaves on the trees were better than prosecco for the mood this parkrun morning. Thank you very much.

Brockenhurst parkrun, on your penultimate winter course run – thank you for being awesome. The directions to get to the parking worked beautifully. We paid the suggested donation into the ticket machine (parking money=money to maintain parking=ability to get out into the countryside) and then chatted gently underneath the bluest of skies whilst waiting for the pre-event set up to happen around us. In addition to the usual parkrun stuff, I really liked the map showing the contours (might borrow this idea for my home run) and it was lovely to have someone come over and describe the course as we stood around in the sun.

The start is unexpectedly congested. There didn’t feel like many people at the Inclosure until 3-2-1 surge; suddenly there were legs and arms everywhere. That did clear relatively quickly and it was a case of settle into the trot being mindful of instructions not to sprint down the first hill. The course is undulating with 2 hills of proper note, the first longer climb, then after the dog leg the drop and short sharp climb. It was, in fact, one perfect lap. I had trail shoes on but could have perfectly well worn road shoes. Sadly we didn’t have time to stay for coffee but I’d love to return again.

To the results.

164 parkrunners made it out in the sun. There were 8 runners on their very first parkrun – what a beautiful day to start. Do come back next time. 7 were doing their difficult second parkrun with 3 recording PBs today, and 6 completing their parkrun trio – with just one PB. May this sunny morning inspire all of you to continue.

Gail LYDFORD joined the 50 club by completing the sunny parkrun today – well done Gail, may your t-shirt claim be soon.

Adam JUNDI led the men in and Michaela STRINGER the women – well done for three first finishes in a row Adam and for a first finish in your first parkrun ever Michaela.

To all those who volunteered today, particularly those running in Southampton tomorrow, thank you for making the first warm parkrun of 2018 so very special: thank you too, as Run Director Steve WARDLE announced, to the #ForestryCommission for allowing the team to continue for the extra month while the college grounds are so muddy.

This week 164 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 26 were first timers and 35 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 22 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 18 volunteers:

David MCELHENNY • Peter REJCHRT • Sarah Charlotte REJCHRT • Katrin PRITCHARD • Steve WARDLE • Karen WARDLE • Poppy WARDLE • Mike BRUCE-BURGESS • Pippa WHITE • Ellie PRITCHARD • Robbie PRITCHARD • Micky PRITCHARD • Glenda MONSON • Caroline BARNFIELD • Arthur LOMAX • Pamela PODESTA • Hilary BRUCE-BURGESS • Tanya BAILEY

Parkrun results – 8th April 2017

Thank you to all our runners this morning in a sunny Brockenhurst.
