The running conditions were as good as could be expected in Haga Park for a mid-January Saturday morning in Stockholm and 60 runners took advantage of this and completed this week's run.
We had visitors from Australia, Spain, Denmark, Germany, Italy and the UK this week. Apologies if I've missed anyone here. One of our guests from the UK had actually changed his flight from Friday evening to Saturday morning so that he could join us. We were also pleased to welcome another visitor from the UK who now works in Exeter, a town in the South West of England, close to where I grew up.
In addition to the regulars, whom I feel are due for a special mention and "well done" this week, we had 6 parkrun first timers.
Arbetskamraterna braved the cold weather yet again to serve the usual post-run "fika" on-site which has now become an integral part of our parkrun
Sarah-Jane Barrable and husband Nick were also in attendance with their new-born daughter, and I'm sure it won't be long before she finds herself being propelled around the course.
As always, the volunteers were out in force this week. Anna KLÖFVER , Åsa LUNDIN, Wynand BOSHOFF and Natasha MARASCHIN did a great job at the start and finish line which meant that there were no problems with the processing of the results. Out on the course, Filip AINOUZ , Paul COWLING and Svante WETTERLING made sure that nobody got lost together with Hugh MANNING who was the tail runner. Also special thanks to Claire WARD-PASSEY for her support with processing the results at The Expresso House in Odenplan.
Here's all the official statistics from Saturday's event:
