Uncharted territory for us at Haga parkrun, our first parkrun in July. Now we can say that we have had a parkrun in every month of the year! Despite the forecast, we had a lovely morning in Haga, if anything a little bit on the warm side in the sunshine for those trying for a quick time. Registrations at Haga continue to roll in, with over 20 people each week signing up, and we had a bunch of new faces at the start line this week, together with a number of tourists who were visiting from the UK and also Russia.
A thing that we love about parkrun is the age-graded score system, which meant that you had to look to 19th place to see which runner recorded the highest age-graded score. Bengt Isgård, in the category Veteran Män 65-69 ran 22:28, which resulted in a score of 75.37%. Nice work Bengt, a fantastic achievement!
As we often say, don’t forget to click around on the results if you’re interested in that kind of thing, you can find all sorts of interesting statistics for both your own performances and those of everyone running at parkrun, just by clicking on a name in the results. It’s amazing.
Colm was back behind the camera this week, and was his speedy self in getting all the photos from the event uploaded already on Saturday afternoon. What service! We will soon not be seeing so much of Colm as he will be off looking after the new Huddinge parkrun which starts on August 19th! So we would really love some more people who would be interested in taking a few pics at Haga parkrun on a Saturday morning. If you know someone who might be interested now and again, please let us know.
A big well done to all who came and volunteered or ran this week. You rock! See you all again this Saturday for another summer parkrun.
