It was never really about the run

When Paul Sinton-Hewitt created parkrun back in 2004 he thought he was developing a running time-trial that would enable keen runners to measure their ‘progress’ and get faster. In reality, he was building a stunningly-effective yet wonderfully-simple health-and-happiness intervention, with himself as the first targeted recipient.   For a few years Bushy parkrun rolled along…

Fika är viktigare än du tror på parkrun!

Så ofta vi hinner och vädret tillåter säljer vi fika på parkrun i Hagaparken. Vi är jätteglada att Arbetskamraterna har fått den möjligheten så vi får möta alla härliga människor som har sprungit och sen vill köpa kaffe, bulle, smörgås eller något annat gott.   Efter några veckors försäljning känner vi igen personer som springer…
