52 hardy souls at the start

Saturday didn't disappoint in terms of atmosphere at Örebro parkrun being our 88th event and we are slowly creeping towards that magical 100. In fact, as long as we don't have to cancel anytime in the next 11 weeks then we will hit the 100 mark exactly on our 2nd birthday! Double reason to celebrate that event.

Yesterday was fun for me on a personal note as we had our nephew staying with us from England. Henry a good track runner himself ran with my family, in true parkrun style, although somewhat colder than he is normally used to. He, my son Hugo and wife Ulrika all ran together with my daughter Sadie enjoying a walk with the Tail Walker gang!

Tail Walkers unite!

At least 5 new people (plus a few that didn't regsister in time) today which is awesome considering we are in the middle of winter, it's "slightly colder" and there are plenty of other exciting things to do such as skiing, skating etc. However, those that did turn up certainly weren't disappointed with the course, being in perfect condition.

Great to see several walkers again today highlight that parkrun is open for everyone as long you take yourselves around the 5km course. Amongst those walkers was Tahlia who visiting her family in Örebro all the way from Australia; she normally takes pictures at her local parkrun in Yamba NSW, where the rest of her family are all active. How cool is that!

Örebro parkrun #87 run report

För oss är säkerhet viktigt och därför fick vi tänka om lite den här helgen. Inte kunde vi ha alla deltagare halka omkring på isig "gräsplan" och inte ville vi grusa planen så att vi skulle få skäll över att det sen blir grus i gräset. Hmmm - men tur att vi har en finurlig Tony Bergman i funktionärsgruppen, som kom på den brillianta idén om en ny dragning av målområdet. Visst blev det bra!

Det är också viktigt att det är säkert ute på banan. Därför försöker vi, eller ber någon, provspringa banan på fredagen. Vi är lyckligt lottade som har många som brukar ge oss en statusrapport. Vi utgår alltid från att man ska kunna ta sig runt banan i vanliga löparskor.

Alla parkruns i Stockholm samt Uppsala var inställda i helgen p g a snö och halka. Christer Liljefelt från parkrun Huddinge var så löparsugen att han tog sig till oss. Superkul med sånt finbesök.

Hej hej Christer!

Väderutsikterna i början av veckan var usla men återigen hade vi tur. En fantastisk morgon och Rynningeviken visade upp sig från sin absolut bästa sida. Den här veckan var Malin Wiremalm vår fotograf. Ni kan se hennes fina bilder på www.flickr.com/groups/orebro-parkrun/">https://www.flickr.com/groups/orebro-parkrun/

Vi har haft en stadig grupp på 65-70 personer på lördagarna. Bästa uppslutningen i Norden. TACK! Ni är bäst!
Varje vecka har vi också 6-7 funktionärer. Den här veckan var det: Sara Moser, Tony Bergman, Gunnviol Kattilakoski, Malin Wiremalm och Nicklas Forsling. TACK! Ni är guld värda!

Stunning start to Örebro parkrun

"barnvagnar" are very popular at parkrun

The first parkrun of 2019. On this day last year we saw 37 people complete our 5 km course around Rynningeviken, today we welcomed 68, which is some increase indeed! A trend we've seen for a while at Örebro parkrun and are loving the fact that we are attracting a great mix of people, ages, backgrounds, abilities and genders.

Jimmy - photographer turned runner!

We talk about sense of community all the time at parkrun and it's really evident at Örebro with many of our volunteers that when they are not helping out they come down and take part, walking or running. Jimmy (above) and Annica (below) are, to name just a few, examples of this. Both have volunteered many times, Jimmy is famed for his awesome pics and Annica even had a stint as a Run Director.

Kerstin completed her 25th time as a volunteer, which rewards with a Milestone t-shirt

Great to be "back in business" with a new parkrun year, lots of opportunities to grow and see even more people be active with our already large "fan-base".

That's it for this time, see you all next week for Örebro parkrun #87
