Haga parkrun, event #63, run report

How many parkrun volunteers does it take to fix a finish funnel?
 
Well, we discovered that the answer was 5, and even then, it takes a while! But it is great that both volunteers and runners helped us out to get it fixed – as we always like to say, we’re all in this together.
 
Finish funnel fixed we waited for the trickle of runners gathering at the start/finish area to gather speed, and by 9.30 we had nearly 80 eager parkrunners waiting for the off. Conditions were much better than expected – the forecast of rain/sleet/snow and high winds never materialised, and although we can’t exactly say it was tropical conditions, the course was looking good and it was still just on the plus side of zero.
 
A first mention to August Frew, whom was running his 150th parkrun (he’s now a regular here at Haga after moving back home from Manchester) and celebrated that with a new PB at Haga and the first time under 20 mins. Good job!
 
Shout outs also to the 5 other runners who managed PBs this week – well done Mikael Larsson, Thibault Milesi, Jan Buchtele, Mansib Rahman and David Hutchinson. And of course, well done to EVERYONE who joined in this week, including the 21 first-timers/tourists, and a special big thanks to the volunteers!
 
3 more parkruns in 2017 to celebrate, we hope that you’ll be able to join us for one or more of these. On the 23rd December we’ll be encouraging Christmas themed fancy dress, and there’ll be glögg and pepparkakor to enjoy at the finish.
 
Have a great week Haga parkrunners and see you all next time!

Haga parkrun, event #62, run report

IMG_0354

This time last year we were forced to cancel Haga parkrun, so it was great to see a fine turnout on Saturday, with 84 runners coming to the start line for the 62nd Haga parkrun.
The tourists from the UK were easy to spot in their traditional dress of shorts and t-shirts despite the temperatures hovvering just above freezing. Just don't stop moving!
 
The turnout at Espresso House increased once again, and this time the upstairs table wasn't big enough - instead we took over the whole basement! It's a little walk to get there, but it's always a good crowd who come along to join us for a coffee afterwards, so remember everyone is very welcome and after all, the post-parkrun fika is half of what it's all about :-)
 
We hope that you appreciate the photos we take each week, and which you can find on the Haga parkrun photos page . We have now decided that the old Canon camera that we have been using is actually no better than an iphone, so if you wish to be a photographer for Haga parkrun one week, then a phone will work! People with big and expensive cameras are also encouraged to volunteer of course......
 
Well done to all that ran on Saturday - 17 new PBs was a pretty good show for a morning in December! Great to see regulars like Marcelo Ibarra, Håkan Bergström, Eva Olsson, and Douglas Yeong getting PBs today (sorry for those I haven't mentioned!). And a special shout-out for Claire Ward-Passey's 30:01 PB - nearly there Claire!

Haga parkrun, event #61, run report

Haga parkrun Event number 61! Time certainly flies. After a little bit of uncertainty earlier in the week, when the paths were icy and snowy, the rain and the mild weather had washed it all away, and we were ready to go on Saturday morning. It was still a chilly start, and the path leading to the start was a bit slippy, but the course itself was in great condition.
 
As usual, at 9.10 volunteers still outnumbered the runners, and we had the weekly ritual of wondering if anyone was coming along today. Of course they were! Our local parkrunners have perfected the parkrun tradition of arriving just in time for the start - and with this winter weather, quite right too! In charge today for the first time was Mija, so a big thank you to Mija for making sure that everything ran smoothly. She was up early to make sure the signs were out on the course and that everything else was in place before the start. Not to mention the results processing. Good job!
 
So to the action. This week we had just one solitary 'parkrun tourist', from South Africa, and we had 8 newcomers running parkrun for the first time. We hope that you enjoyed your first parkrun experience! For the first time we had a barnvagn in first place, so congratulations to Julian Dent for that achievement. Shame that the cameraman wasn't quite as quick as Julian.....

We had 'double fika' this week - both in place at Hagaparken with the lovely Arbetskamraterna

and then a packed-out table at Espresso House

All in all, a great Saturday morning! Let's do it all again this weekend :-)

Haga parkrun, event #58, run report

It was a great week at Haga parkrun, with our usual lovely mix of ‘regulars’, tourists and first-timers. Given that it was höstlov, it was a great turnout with 75 runners coming along, with our usual fantastic volunteer team in attendance to make sure everything ran smoothly!
 
And it was fantastic to have the cameras from TV4 in attendance, with the super positive Maria Forsblom taking part. She genuinely seemed to really enjoy the atmosphere and she has promised to come back and run with her family in a few weeks’ time. Cool!
 
Fika afterwards was also a bit special with the team from Arbetskamraterna serving us fika right at the finish line, which seemed to go down very well. We hope that they will be able to make it on future occasions!
 
The only thing that we forgot in all the excitement was to take some pictures this week, so our reminder of the week’s action is from the TV4 clip that we have already posted all over our social media channels. If you have managed to avoid this until now, you can see it here: TV4 parkrun clip.

 
We still miss having a regular photographer, so if you know someone, please please tell us, as everyone loves the photos that we post up after each event.

Time flies when you are having fun - or when you are busy! But a Haga parkrun week would not be a Haga parkrun week unless we wrote a little run report and gave ourselves a reminder that we were all awesome and turned up to run Haga parkrun last Saturday! Last week we had the pleasure of hosting a 'club event' with our friends at Club Running Sweden.

They provided pacers for different finish times (20, 23, 25, 27 and 30 minutes) and also helped with a great volunteer turnout around the course to cheer on all the 66 runners whom we welcomed to the park on Saturday. We all thought that it was a great success and something that we would like to do again. We had some feedback that people really enjoyed having the pacers, and that's something we'll aim to do again.

The day was also memorable as we celebrated the 100th parkrun for both Natasha and Wynand, our South African parkrun friends who are making their lives in Sweden. They first arrived in Stockholm in the snowy winter and have been a near constant presence at Haga parkrun ever since, making friends, volunteering and generally being a huge positive spirit for the group. So it was great that they could celebrate their 100th parkrun with us, and of course, crossed the line together. Lucky we had (just!) managed to bake a cake......

A big thanks too for Christer Schapiro, who took the photos today. A little step above what we are used to on the picture front! Go check them out, we have been spoiled.
 
Come and join us on Saturday and capture the last few weeks of autumn with us in Hagaparken. It's a long time before we see those leaves again!
