Introducing parkrun record holder Yoie Bohlin

Haga parkrun #83

This week we had the pleasure to welcome back Yoie Bohlin to parkrun, where she was the first overall finisher at Haga parkrun, running a speedy 17:36, just a few seconds short of her record time set back on the 10th June 2017.

Not only does Yoie hold the women’s parkrun record time, but she is also the age-grade record holder in Sweden, with a score of 84.57%. (For those not used to how this works, Age-Graded scores are calculated with relation to the runners’ gender and age and are based on a % of the world-record times for each age. It gives parkrunners of all ages a chance to compare their times and is a fantastic motivational tool).

Yoie was a precocious talent, running under 2 hours for the challenging 30km Lidingöloppet course already back in 2008, aged just 18. In recent years she has turned her talents to the world of Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) events, picking up victories all over the world, and also Sky Racing, tough mountain races, where she notably won the Stranda Fjord Trail race in Norway in 2016.
 

During the summers she is based in Åre and then spends a period of time in the winter each year in Kenya, where here father runs a training camp. This year she’s planning to return to Lidingöloppet to tackle the 30km course again. She’s also recently become a Salming Athlete, so that ties in nicely with Salming’s sponsorship and support of parkrun events this year for which we are very grateful – helping to keep all our events, free, forever.
