The news that everyone on the west coast of Norway has been waiting for – registration is now open for the upcoming Stavanger parkrun, who have their first event on April 21st!
You can now sign up for parkrun and choose Stavanger as your ‘home’ run, which means that you’ll then be kept up to date with the latest information from the Stavanger parkrun team. Here’s also a link to the course route, which takes you around Mosvatnet before taking a detour up to Vålandstornet, taking in a fantastic view over the city.
The team are busy preparing themselves for the launch date, getting the kit prepared and doing some final test runs of the route to fine-tune things before the big day.
Stavanger’s closest parkrun neighbour is Tøyen parkrun in Oslo, but as you will see from the map above, Stavanger’s location on the west coast of Norway means that it’s almost as close to reach parkruns in all directions of the compass. Below you will see Bressay parkrun in Shetland, Ellon parkrun in Aberdeenshire, Skatås parkrun in Göteborg and Nibe parkrun in Denmark.
We look forward to welcoming parkrunners from all over the globe to the beautiful city of Stavanger, but most of all, we look welcoming the people of Stavanger to discover and fall in love with parkrun!
