Örebro parkrun #16 run report

IMG_3583

Well done Kerstin! Totally love these kinds of stories; whereby after 5 weeks of trying Kerstin managed to run the whole of parkrun without stopping, awesome and great effort Kerstin, we look forward to seeing you at parkrun as often as you can.

This week we had 61 participants, as per usual of all abilities, which is fantastic to see considering it's peak semester time and many people are away. Let's keep Örebro parkrun growing and soon I want to see our record (Öpr#1) of 97 smashed!

Great to meet Paul and Gareth from the UK. Paul has been threatening to come down for a few weeks now so it was nice to finally meet another parkrun tourist. Both gave really positive feedback about our course and event which was great to hear. Indeed parkrun is growing in Scandinavia with new events in Skatås (Göteborg), Huddinge and Oslo opening shortly; please use your barcode and test out other parkruns.

A "little downpour" at the end didn't spoil the party as we greeted the the final person home, which is always our tailwalker.

Just a reminder that we always need our tokens back that you are handed when you cross the line. You keep your barcodes to use over and over and we keep the tokens (which we need every week)

We are planning some "event days" at parkrun for the future, just to mix things up a bit. On September 16th, Örebro AIK will take over parkrun and offer the chance to run with some pace groups (farthållare). If you have ever thought about joining a running club, are just curious about what benefits they offer or want to run with a controlled, pace group and even get a PB now is your chance!

Any other club that wants to run a parkrun day just let us know and we'll organise something.

Hopefully Friskis & Svettis will also have an event day. Any other event days you'd us to orgainse just let us know and we can discuss your ideas.

Thanks for this week and see you next Saturday for Örebro parkrun #17!

As ever a big shout out to our volunteers who this week were:
Matt FORD • Stephanie LOWRY • Andrew LOWRY • Ulrika FORD • Karl KIND • Julia HAMMARSTRÖM • Tove ANGER • Thomas BERGMAN • Julius REX • Nicklas FORSLING

pic: Johan Lindskog in full flow again...(in green)

Great to see my my club colleague Johan back in full flow again after a long-term injury which prevented him from running. Johan is also a regular volunteer at parkrun. Nice one mate!

Super stunning weather again for the 2nd week in a row, another great turnout with 19 people running Örebro parkrun for the 1st time. Really pleases me enormously to see our fantastic event growing each week, with more and more people enjoying the simplicity of the concept. Doesn't cost money to enter, it's EVERY week, same time, same place, 5km, which is a distance most people will feel comfortable covering and especially as it's to you if you run or walk. parkrun creates the environment in which people can come together and encourage each other. Whether it be to set a new personal best (PB) (which we of course record every week) or simply just to be active in a stunning National Park with like-minded people. Then, best of all, have a coffee and chat together afterwards.

11 new PB's, which means that 11 people who have previously taken part at Örebro parkrun have bettered their time this week. It's great to see these improvements alongside anyone who is turning up and being active. Alongside friends, family and of course new-found parkrun-mates what could be a better start to the weekend?

Örebro parkrun #14 run report

Öpr#14 Brits

Stunning weather, new volunteers (as is often at Örebro parkrun) and visitors from the UK. With 59 runners it was a really fun atmosphere and lots of sweaty, smiles afterwards!

AnnicaWeber

Annica Sjölund was presented with her Weber Grill from the prize draw we made on the 25th June (midsummer) and there probably couldn't be a more deserved winner. Annica has taken part in every single Örebro parkrun to date, both as a runner and volunteer. She is active in helping us spread the word and is always positive and brings joy to our events, so thank you Annica.

As ever a big shout out to our volunteers who this week were:
Ulrika FORD • Karl KIND • Pär ERICZZON • Tove ANGER • Lars LANNEBORN • Julius REX • Veida HARLIN
parkrun’s philosophy is all about what goes around comes around. The way we keep the event free and every week is by people helping out sometimes. In fact, I personally find the volunteering part so amazingly rewarding, I’m happy to keep helping out. That’s why I’d encourage everyone to have a go. You can drop us a line on our facebook page (Örebro parkrun) or email us @ orebrooffice@parkrun.com

Örebro parkrun #13 run report

IMG_0190

8:e juli… vaknade av att regnet smattrade på fönsterblecket! Vi åkte i väg tidigt för att sätta upp banan, regnet fortsatte att ösa ner. Jag började tvivla på att det skulle komma några parkrunners idag, kombinationen regn och semestertider kändes inte så gynnsam. Men så fel jag hade!! Vilken fantastisk dag det blev, trots regnet kom det 33 stycken glada löpare till vårt 13:e event. Fem av dessa sprang för första gången och12 stycken satte nytt pb. Stämningen var på topp och många leenden vid målgång! Det är så inspirerande och ger så mycket energi att vara volontär på dessa ”lopp”. Kom och prova på!

En familj kom från Dublin där dottern Maia Moore 14 år ”jagar” hundra parkrun, hon är på god väg och har nu gjort 91 stycken! De hade ett önskemål, fint väder men det klarade vi inte, tyvärr! Men de var nöjda ändå, tack för att ni kom till oss i Örebro!

Inget parkrun utan våra volontärer. Tack till er som hjälpte oss idag och särskilt tack till Julia Hammarström som firade sin födelsedag med oss! Innan start så hurrade vi för henne!

Efteråt var vi några som avnjöt en fika på Naturens Hus, det var några som ivrigt väntade på sina resultat medan run director för dagen kämpade med att få in tider och placeringar, lite pirrigt var det tills alla fått sina resultat och jag kunde andas ut!

Örebro parkrun #12 run report

Örebro parkrun 1/7

Första dagen i juli månad 2017 visade sig vara lördag, alltså parkrun day! 7 stycken volontärer dök upp för att ge de 38st löparna en så härlig upplevelse som möjligt. Som vanligt började dagens run director med ett förtal för löparna. Vi passade på att ta en bild där vi vinkade till Parkrun Örebros grundare Matt som välförtjänt vilar upp sig i Grekland.

Våra parkrunners fick springa den vackra banan i sol. Först i mål var Oskar Larsson, som inte hade med sig sin streckkod och blir där med registrerad som okänd. Som vi brukar säga och som vi kommer fortsätta säga, GLÖM INTE ER STRECKKOD!

Ytligare ett lyckad lopp i Örebro. Även om löparantalet svek lite i dessa semestertider. Personligen tycker jag att Parkrun är ett utmärkt tillfälle att göra något för att kunna unna sig en glass med gott samvete. Till exempel kan den glassen avnjutas direkt efter loppet på Naturenshus som håller extra öppet för oss! Jag vill också passa på att tacka alla volontärer som gjorde ytligare ett lopp möjligt.

Örebro parkrun #11 run report

Midsummer!
Örebro parkrun midsummer

The day after Midsummer, "nobody will turn up", they said! "Everyone will be hungover", they said. Well, 38 people, plus 9 volunteers disagreed! They turned up ran, jogged and walked as usual and all agreed it was more than worth it.

There was even some idiot dressed in traditional Midsummer costume, but not sure who he was!

Quite a few of stayed behind after (dodging the showers) and had a BBQ which was really nice to see with our usual "fika" place - Naturens Hus, closed.

We had a prize draw for anyone that turned up at either Örebro or Haga parkruns as a runner or volunteer. We did the draw (myself and Deri in Stockholm) and the winner was Annica Sjölund from Örebro who will be presented with her prize of a Weber grill at Örebro parkrun #14.

We intend to try and bring in sponsors and from time to time hold competitions and prize draws so watch this space.
