We are delighted to announce that the website for the latest new parkrun in Sweden, Skatås parkrun in Göteborg (Gothenburg) is going live this Friday, 21st July. This means that from this day onwards you’ll be able to register with Skatås parkrun as your local parkrun. The first event is on Saturday August 12th at 9.30, and Skatås parkrun will then take place every Saturday after that at the same time!
As home to Göteborgsvarvet, one of the world’s biggest participation races, the city has running in its blood, and we’re sure that Skatås parkrun is going to make a positive contribution to the community. Skatås is just a fantastic place to run, and we hope that many people will be inspired to come out and run in the fantastic nature that we have to offer to just a stone’s throw away from the city centre.
The course takes in a loop around Härlanda Tjärn, and the first half is extremely flat, on a wide gravel path. The second half takes in a few hills as it leaves the lake and follows the elljusspår back to the start/finish area behind Skatås Motioncentral.
And of course after the parkrun we will have a fika each week at the café at Skatås Motioncentrum!
Here you can read more about Skatås parkrun and check out a map of the course. To register, go to the registration page.
We look forward to welcoming you to Skatås parkrun!
