How many parkrun volunteers does it take to fix a finish funnel?
 
Well, we discovered that the answer was 5, and even then, it takes a while! But it is great that both volunteers and runners helped us out to get it fixed – as we always like to say, we’re all in this together.
 
Finish funnel fixed we waited for the trickle of runners gathering at the start/finish area to gather speed, and by 9.30 we had nearly 80 eager parkrunners waiting for the off. Conditions were much better than expected – the forecast of rain/sleet/snow and high winds never materialised, and although we can’t exactly say it was tropical conditions, the course was looking good and it was still just on the plus side of zero.
 
A first mention to August Frew, whom was running his 150th parkrun (he’s now a regular here at Haga after moving back home from Manchester) and celebrated that with a new PB at Haga and the first time under 20 mins. Good job!
 
Shout outs also to the 5 other runners who managed PBs this week – well done Mikael Larsson, Thibault Milesi, Jan Buchtele, Mansib Rahman and David Hutchinson. And of course, well done to EVERYONE who joined in this week, including the 21 first-timers/tourists, and a special big thanks to the volunteers!
 
3 more parkruns in 2017 to celebrate, we hope that you’ll be able to join us for one or more of these. On the 23rd December we’ll be encouraging Christmas themed fancy dress, and there’ll be glögg and pepparkakor to enjoy at the finish.
 
Have a great week Haga parkrunners and see you all next time!

Haga parkrun, event #62, run report

IMG_0354

This time last year we were forced to cancel Haga parkrun, so it was great to see a fine turnout on Saturday, with 84 runners coming to the start line for the 62nd Haga parkrun.
The tourists from the UK were easy to spot in their traditional dress of shorts and t-shirts despite the temperatures hovvering just above freezing. Just don't stop moving!
 
The turnout at Espresso House increased once again, and this time the upstairs table wasn't big enough - instead we took over the whole basement! It's a little walk to get there, but it's always a good crowd who come along to join us for a coffee afterwards, so remember everyone is very welcome and after all, the post-parkrun fika is half of what it's all about :-)
 
We hope that you appreciate the photos we take each week, and which you can find on the Haga parkrun photos page . We have now decided that the old Canon camera that we have been using is actually no better than an iphone, so if you wish to be a photographer for Haga parkrun one week, then a phone will work! People with big and expensive cameras are also encouraged to volunteer of course......
 
Well done to all that ran on Saturday - 17 new PBs was a pretty good show for a morning in December! Great to see regulars like Marcelo Ibarra, Håkan Bergström, Eva Olsson, and Douglas Yeong getting PBs today (sorry for those I haven't mentioned!). And a special shout-out for Claire Ward-Passey's 30:01 PB - nearly there Claire!

Haga parkrun, event #61, run report

Haga parkrun Event number 61! Time certainly flies. After a little bit of uncertainty earlier in the week, when the paths were icy and snowy, the rain and the mild weather had washed it all away, and we were ready to go on Saturday morning. It was still a chilly start, and the path leading to the start was a bit slippy, but the course itself was in great condition.
 
As usual, at 9.10 volunteers still outnumbered the runners, and we had the weekly ritual of wondering if anyone was coming along today. Of course they were! Our local parkrunners have perfected the parkrun tradition of arriving just in time for the start - and with this winter weather, quite right too! In charge today for the first time was Mija, so a big thank you to Mija for making sure that everything ran smoothly. She was up early to make sure the signs were out on the course and that everything else was in place before the start. Not to mention the results processing. Good job!
 
So to the action. This week we had just one solitary 'parkrun tourist', from South Africa, and we had 8 newcomers running parkrun for the first time. We hope that you enjoyed your first parkrun experience! For the first time we had a barnvagn in first place, so congratulations to Julian Dent for that achievement. Shame that the cameraman wasn't quite as quick as Julian.....

We had 'double fika' this week - both in place at Hagaparken with the lovely Arbetskamraterna

and then a packed-out table at Espresso House
