Örebro parkrun #33 run report

Some of the volunteer gang before parkrunners arrive

What a truly stunning morning to host Örebro parkrun event #33; this was the kind of morning that made you glad to be alive! Cold and crisp with a stunning sunrise over the amazing Rynningeviken.

Great to see again lots of people turning up and continuing to enjoy parkrun with us. We saw a few new people turning up this week, which is fantastic, just remember to register and bring along your barcodes. Officially the policy is "no barcode no time" and as this in the ONLY request we have to take part at parkrun for free every week, we don't feel it's a great deal to ask. Do you?

Gunnar - a visitor from Göteborg

Örebro parkrun was a pleasure to run for me this week and it's great to mix it up; volunteer some weeks, run by myself or jog with my family that's the beauty of this event, it holds something for everyone. I saw ice forming on Hjälmaren as we cross over Rävgången rounding via the "boom" and back along the road with the sun in our faces, back towards the Värmestugan with Jimmy snapping away; trying to muster up enough energy to jump off the ground and not look a total muppet (as I usually do!). Big thanks to Jimmy and Petter for your amazing pictures that helps us to spread the parkrun love.

Örebro parkrun really is for everyone!

43 people took part this week and I counted more than half that amount at Naturens Hus afterwards enjoying a well-deserved chat and fika.

See you next Saturday

Lots of great pictures this week thanks to Jimmy

Här springer en av våra fotografer!

Vaknade av att det smattrade på rutorna! Skulle det bli samma väder som förra veckan? Jag som bara sett bilderna och det såg inte skönt ut! Men så blev det inte som tur var! Lite kyligt men det ska det vara så här års. Det kom 40 glada parkrunners till start och vi var 8 volontärer! Marie som var volontär för första gången skrev så här efteråt: Det är roligt att springa med parkrun, men att vara volontär är ren lycka! Det stämmer så väl, det är därför vi återkommer helg efter helg det har blivit något man inte kan vara utan! Och nu börjar det komma in några nya volontärer varje helg vilket vi tycker är jättekul!

Showing true Örebro parkrun spirit despite the weather

I'd like to start this week by saying a massive thanks to our amazing volunteers:

Matt FORD • Julia HAMMARSTRÖM • Petter SEGERÅS • Gunnviol KATTILAKOSKI • Tove ANGER • Viveka PÅLHED • Peter BERGSTRÖM • Åsa SÄÄKSJÄRVI • Martina BERGH

Despite quite "challenging" conditions, everyone turned up on time and positive; helping out with whatever was needed and spreading thumbs up and high-fives to the parkrunners that took part.

We were chatting amongst ourselves at the start and saying we'd be surprised if even 10-15 people showed up; 2c, windy, sleet and rain, certainly not the most conducive to a jog or walk around our 5km course. So when we ended up with 39 in total I think everyone was happily surprised. But it yet again shows what an incredible event we are continuing to grow here in Örebro. We are seeing more and more of the apricot parkrun clothing, which is great as any profits from those sales go back to parkrun, barcode wrist-bands and a real willingness to embrace our ehtos. parkrun is here to stay (given that it's safe in terms of ice) we will host our event in all weathers as was shown on Saturday.

The pre-run brief under the tent this week for those that could find space

Viveka (one of the new additions to our Run Director team) held the pre-run brief before we got everyone under way, with the usual mix of participants, kids, dogs, push-chairs and joggers and runners.

One by one they all came back, "slightly" wetter and colder but nevertheless still smiling, we on the other hand were struggling to feel our fingers on the stop watches!

Never was a "fika" so more welcoming than today.

Thank you everyone for Saturday, it's these kinds of days that gives me so much energy and reminds why we do this.

Örebro parkrun #30 run report

Örebro Parkrun #30

Dags för den 30:e parkrun i Örebro och som vanligt....när jag är RD för parkrun börjar dagen med regn! Och som "vanligt" blir det bättre väder så även denna lördag! Karma? Snacket gick innan start om hur många som skulle dyka upp, nu börjar det utkristallisera sig vilka som tycker om löpning även då det börjar bli lite kallare. Med parkrun hoppas vi kunna inspirera fler att fortsätta motionera utomhus även under den mörka kalla årstiden, det kändes som vi lyckats bra hittills det var 40 st glada parkrunners i olika åldrar som kom till start denna höstlördag! 6 stycken deltog för första gången och 16 slog personligt rekord, vilken härlig stämning det var. Tack alla som kom och gjorde vår lördag! Vi avlutade som vanligt med go´fika på Naturens Hus, idag var det skönt att komma in i värmen.
