New parkrun Nordics participation record

Tampere bparty

This past weekend was a great landmark in the short history of parkrun in the Nordics. Thanks to the turnout in Örebro, the attendance record for a single event was broken, beating the previous record of 146 runners from Amager Faelled parkrun in Denmark some years ago.
 

It was also the highest number of runners that had taken part in parkrun in Sweden, with 390 people coming along to run, jog and walk this Saturday, supported by 40 volunteers across 6 events.
 

In Finland, it was also a record breaking week, with 112 runners coming along to Tampere parkrun, helping to celebrate the birthdays of two of the Run Directors there, Johanna Riippi and Ulla Sergejeff (see photo above).
 
And finally, it was also the highest number of runners across the Nordics as a whole, including Denmark. Close to 1000 people ran or volunteered across the Nordic region last Saturday, a barrier that we look forward to breaking soon!
