Every parkrun is a guest of the specific landowner for the course, and we’re very honoured to be welcome in Hagaparken, and able to run in the beautiful surroundings that it provides every week.


If the only chance that you’ve had to look around the park is when you’re pushing yourself on Saturday morning, then take the chance to come back in more leisure and have a look at what the park has to offer. You can read about all the buildings in the park here.


On November 6th, Hagaparken hosts the wonderful Ljustfesten (Festival of Light) which is this year celebrating its 10th anniversary. At this time of year, when the darkness is closing in, it’s a great time to celebrate. There’s three points where you can meet the Fackeltåg (Torch train), including from the jetty near Haga Forum/Ställmästaregården, close to the start of Haga parkrun. Highly recommended!
