It’s beginning to look a lot like…..a Christmas parkrun

For most of the region, we’re still waiting for the snow to fall and the winter feeling to arrive. True, a little bit of snow and ice came to Norway, but alas caused both Festningen parkrun in Trondheim and Tøyen parkrun in Oslo to be cancelled.   So last week it was just one properly…

Volunteering – It’s so rewarding!

I felt it was time to write some words about our amazing, fantastic, awesome volunteers that help make parkrun happen every week around the world.   There’s an image within the traditional role models of clubs (föreningar) in Sweden that everyone who is a member (or indeed if you are a parent to a child…
