The sun was shining again for Haga parkrun number 4 and a total of 46 runners and 7 volunteers were able to enjoy a nice 5km run in the early autumn sunshine. 27 of our runners were enjoying their first parkrun at Haga, we hope you enjoyed your run and hope to see you again sometime soon! It’s always great to talk to visitors from overseas, hear stories about their parkrun ‘back home’ (wherever that may be in the world) and of course, give recommendations of places to visit in beautiful Stockholm. It’s also great that we are now seeing familiar faces too
First man to cross the line today was Timmy KARLSSON in a time of 17:29 with the first placed lady Eef VAN DONGEN finishing in 21:02. Both first place finishers were making their second appearances at Haga parkrun. 11 of our returning-runners today recorded new PBs.
As always, a big thank you goes out to all our volunteers! Without them parkrun would not happen. If you are reading this and are curious about volunteering feel free to ask any of the team this coming Saturday. Don’t be afraid to get involved, volunteering at parkrun is about as scary as running in it (and you get to wear a rather gorgeous fluorescent yellow bib)
We hope to see you all back on Saturday - fingers crossed for more sunshine.
