Lymington Tri Club’s Gemma Russhard leads the women home at Brockenhurst parkrun





BROCKENHURST parkrun welcomed 172 people to the latest event, led home by Robert Spencer, who appeared to have no trouble cruising around the course in 17:35.

Bournemouth AC’s M30 Spencer led the field home for the third, seemingly strolling down the home straight, while Lymington Tri Club’s W40 Gemma Russhard was the first woman across the line.

It was Russhard’s 14th time leading the women home, and she did it with a time of 20:56.
