Örebro parkrun #50

Den klassiska parkrun-blandningen av olika förmågor och familjer med barn, för att inte tala om hundar och barnvagnar. Detta är så här vi vill ha det; sprid ordet - parkrun handlar om gemenskap och mångfald. Glädjen att springa och vara aktiv utomhus i en fantastisk natur.

Idag hade vi många snabba löpare från KFUM Friidrott, bla Niklas Karlsson som var först i mål efter tiden 16.31.

Örebro parkrun #49 run report – 1st birthday

Örebro parkrun #49 - Fyller 1 år - Nytt nordiskt rekord - 193 deltagare

I lördags firade vi 1 år "in action", vårt event #49. Det är fantastiskt att vi bara behövt ställa in fyra gånger med tanke på vintern som vi har haft! Innan lördag hade vi igen aning hur många som skulle komma men hade goda förhoppningar att vi åtminstone skulle slå vårt egna deltagarrekord som var 97. Under veckan såg vi mycket trafik på social media och registreringarna ökade dag för dag (vi landade till slut på 82 nya registreringar!) så förväntningarna var höga; kanske kunde vi slå det svenska deltagarrekordet på 123! Kvällen innan skämtade jag med Deri Thomas (mannen som tog parkrun till Sverige) om att slå det nordiska rekordet på 147 (see where this is heading?) som sattes i Danmark för länge sedan. Han skrattade.

09.20 och plötsligt kom mycket folk

Örebro parkrun #49
Strax innan "pre-run snacket"

Med en megafon och en teckenspråkstolk var det en hel del som var nytt för oss på Örebro parkrun men vi är vana vid utmaningar och hanterade det galant! Vi tackade de som deltagit under de sista 48 eventen och bad alla som någon gång ställt upp som funktionär att stå åt sidan. Det blev en talande uppvisning av hur många som faktiskt varit inblandade och fått parkrun att hända varje lördag. Springa, jogga eller promenera och hjälpa till ibland - that's the parkrun way!

Örebro parkrun #49
Man får ett hum om hur många som deltog

Alla startade som vanligt samtidigt och det var fantastiskt att se så mycket folk. Jag träffade Ebba Örn från SR P4 som rapporterade på de lokala nyheterna senare under morgonen. Trevligt med uppmärksamhet.

Per Arvidsson, Jonas Rosengren och Deri Thomas

Efter 17.32 kom den första parkrunnern i mål; Jonas Rosengren från KFUM tätt följd av Deri Thomas (nämnd tidigare) och sen Per Arvidsson som har sprungit parkrun 6 gånger. Efter 30 minuter 43 sekunder hade vi satt ett nytt svenskt deltagarrekord och efter 59.50 och alla i mål hade vi satt ett fantastiskt, nytt nordiskt rekord med 193 deltagare! WOW!

Många promenerade parkrun idag i vårsolen

Vilken dag det blev! 65 personer deltog i Örebro parkrun för första gången, 37 satte nya personbästa (pb) och vi såg en riktig blandning av åldrar, kön, bakgrund; familjer, barnvagn, hundar - i sann parkrun-anda.

Grattis till Liduina VAN SITTEREN som satte nytt banrekord för damer på 18:47 och Åsa Höög som satte nytt Age Grade course record på: 84.38% (19:12).

Great to welcome Örebro Kanotförening

Indeed as the picture shows we had a gang join us for the 1st time from Örebro Kanotförening junior team, who came to parkrun as part of their day-long training camp. Team-building, fun, running or walking all for free, how cool is that! Something we love at parkrun

Örebro parkrun #48

Örebro parkrun #47 run report

Örebro parkrun #47
Two 1st timers today

Todays parkrun really felt like winter was finally losing it's icy grip on us and spring was beginning to show itself. We arrived "on site" with sun in our eyes and real warmth that we'd missed for several months.

Peolpe started rolling in as per normal and as time to start approached it was soon apparent that we had a nice little crowd of parkrunners again. Over the winter months we've averaged around 20-25 participants and today we were back up in the mid-40's, so hopefully an upward trend that will continue through spring.

I normally ask who is new to parkrun and it was great to see several hands raised, in fact the records show 11 1st timers (potentially 13 as we had 2 without barcodes).

Örebro parkrun #47
Nice to see park"walkers" today

9 new personal bests today, which we simply love. People who have improved their previous best times at Örebro parkrun, no stress just consistently being active, walking or running or both.

Malin Liliegren - part of the team starting a parkrun in Uppsala soon

In 2 weeks, on the 14th April Örebro parkrun celebrates it's 1st birthday. A year ago on our very 1st event 97 people turned up and we got off to an absolute flying start. This year we want to beat the Swedish record which currently stands at 123. Come on Örebro we can do it, spread the word and lets celebrate in style.
