Last week we had the TV cameras in attendance (for those who missed it, you can see the clip HERE) and now this week, we are going to be featuring in both Dagens Nyheter and P4 Radio Stockholm!
We’ve been told that there will be featuring in Saturday’s edition of DN, so you’ll have time to read the interview with Paul Sinton-Hewitt before you make your way to the start line in Haga or Örebro at 9.30.
And on Sunday we’ll be featuring on the ‘Motion-Sverige’ series, where the presenters Lasse Persson and Martin Marhlo have been trying out various forms of training, everything from yoga to cycling, långfärdsskridskor to enduro. As they say themselves, ‘Lasse Persson och Martin Marhlo är levande försökskaniner’ :-). You can read all about their previous episodes HERE. Come and join Lasse running Haga parkrun now on Saturday and listen in to the show on Sunday!
Vi ses på lördag!
