Welcome to parkrun everyone from Örebro!

Registration opened at the weekend for Örebro parkrun (seen in the picture above), and it has been great to see the interest already in signing up for the first parkrun on April 8th – and of course beyond! It’s been a challenge sometimes to explain to people that parkrun is something that is regular and not just a one-off! More than 30 people have signed up and registered since the weekend already, and we know that there will be many more in the lead-up to the launch date, including the night before and even the morning of the inaugural event!
Registration is simple and quick to do, just remember to print out your barcode and then bring it along to parkrun. You don’t need it at the start – just when you’ve finished the parkrun, to get scanned and to get your time. It’s easy!
A good tip is to laminate your barcode, so that it will last a little longer! If you don’t have access to a laminating machine, then some normal tape will also work just fine. And of course you can always just print out another barcode if you lose it or it gets damaged.
Your barcode is a passport to over 1000 events all around the world – remember to take your parkrun barcode for your next weekend break in London, Paris, Milan, Moscow, Copenhagen, San Francisco, Dublin, Sydney, Auckland, Singapore for example – yes, they all have parkruns!
So a warm welcome to the parkrun family, and we look forward to seeing you at Örebro parkrun soon!
