Haga parkrun #148

parkrun celebrated its 15th anniversary this weekend and we were 100 runners and 8 volunteers at Haga to celebrate. We also celebrated Mark Aldred’s 100th Haga parkrun and in true parkrun spirit Mark had cake with him to share with us all. A big thanks also to Mark for arriving early to set up he course.
Guests this week came from South Africa, Russia, Holland, Australia and the UK. Apologies if I’ve missed anyone here. I think a few of the tourists were caught out by the cold weather running in shorts, however, even on the coldest Saturdays in winter, we can expect a handful of British tourists to do this!
Our volunteers this week were a mix of regulars and first timers and as always they ensured that today’s run was well organised.
This week we tested a new café for the post-run “fika” and next week we will test another one, the name of which will be announced in the pre-run announcements.
We hope to see as many of you as possible again next week. Don’t let the cold weather put you off. It’s time to make parkrun a habit and a healthy start to your weekend.
