A sister parkrun on the other side of the world!

beach parkrun

Looking at the statistics for Sweden, we can see that in total, Swedish parkrunners have now run a grand total of 13,815km! Not quite once around the world, but at least enough to get to the other side of the world. We thought that we would take a look at where that would get us, and which parkrun is exactly that distance away.

Well, it turned out that it was a fantastic looking parkrun called Mount Clarence parkrun, in a small town called Albany on the southern coast of Western Australia. Like our parkruns in Sweden, Mount Clarence parkrun is still a relatively small parkrun, averaging 40 runners a week. They’ve had 1108 different runners in their history (141 events) compared to the 1105 different runners we’ve had in Sweden so far in Haga and Örebro.

And what a spectacular course it looks like! It’s an out and back along the dramatic coastline that they have there, along a boardwalk, and finishing (of course!) on the beach! Apart from the fact that they start at 8am to escape the heat of the day, it is reassuring to know that everything else is the same, despite the fact the parkrun is on the other side of the world – the barcodes, the post-run coffee, the parkrun flag, the tail runner/walker, the results page.
 
We love Haga and Örebro, but we have to admit, this parkrun looks pretty special too! You can read all about it here.
