A really great parkrun we had on Saturday, as per usual with 5 minutes to the start very few people had shown up and then all of a sudden "pang" everyone is there. With Lidingöloppet and Berlin Marathon we expected to miss some runners but instead we were blessed with 25 1st timers and of course some of our "regulars". Including our current leader with most Örebro parkruns attended Mikael Sandberg at 21 (we've only been going 24 times!), only 29 left to your "50" parkrun milestone shirt. Annica Sjölund stand at 21, Linnea Ekblad & Tony Bergman at 17...great stuff guys. Check the results page for your current standing.
I ran myself this week, well the course has to be inspected sometimes, and it was great to see 1st hand the true mix of people that take part at parkrun. Several families with young children, running, jogging, walking and even flying!
Runners with strollers, dogs and a truly fantastic mix of ages, which other event offers this?
It seems the word is spreading and we say keep going, tell everyone you know about us, challenge your family, your work collegues to come down and give Örebro parkrun a try.
Lots of great pictures this week thanks to Jimmy and Veida:
