We're not sure how much of the promised sun actually shone on Saturday, but in any case it wasn't raining, and it was just PERFECT running conditions at the start - cool, fresh, and no wind at all. A really nice morning for a parkrun, which was clearly the view shared by the 97 of you who joined us on Saturday!
Plenty of new faces with 20 people running Haga parkrun for the very first time. Nice to see the group of Studenternas joining in as well, and using parkrun as a club training session - exactly what we like to see, because we are not in competition with running clubs, in fact the very opposite - as we always stress, parkrun is for everyone, no matter what your level of ability or speed.
The course is also in great condition at this time of year, and that was shown in the 20 PBs that were recorded this week. It's a long list but they all deserve congratulations, so here goes! Well done to Ulrika Tallgård, Mary Scheuermann, Anni Rajala, Sriharsha Bhat, Christian Häggström, Madelene Henriksgaard, Oliver Corps, Per Gysing, Louise Berlin, Anders Bagge, Magnus Blomdahl, Alexander Nordenwald, Göran Strömstedt, Jens Karlsson, Johan Segerström, Kristoffer Hansson and Patric Rajala. Plus it was a good day to be called Cecilia - Cecilia Thhomer, Cecilia Zilliacus and Cecilia Larnemark all recorded PBs this week.
Well done to Bjorn Suneson for the higest age-grade score of the day (just). And big big congratulations to Jamie Johnson for his 50th run! We await the promised home-baked goodies with interest!
Thanks to the volunteers who made it all happen this week:
Deri THOMAS • Hector HAINES • August FREW • Anna FREW • Leo THOMAS • Mary SCHEUERMANN • Jeanna FERGUSSON • Daniel RAMSKÖLD • Anna KLÖFVER
Keep spreading the word about parkrun so that more people can come and find us! And see you on Saturday!
