Records, milestones and plenty of jumps! – this week in the Nordics

Toyen jump 3 cover

This Saturday was a week for records, as the male parkrun record fell in both Sweden and Denmark. And it was also the scene of the great “jump-off” between parkrun Norway and Sweden, with some great action shots from our events around the region. Who won? Well, we’ll let you be the judge.
The jumps
orebro jumps

The records
Emil at Amager Faelled
Emil lap 2

Emil Holm set a new Danish parkrun record when he ran 14:50 at Amager Fælled parkrun this Saturday. We hope he didn’t scare the runners too much when flying past them on his way to the finish!
In Sweden Yasiin Abdi trimmed one second off his best to run a new Swedish parkrun record of 15:50 at Kungsängen parkrun – not the flattest of courses either!
The milestones

It also will celebrate the 2nd anniversary of parkrun in Norway.   Tøyen parkrun was in fact the very first one to launch in Norway and was the start of quite an adventure. At the time of launch, parkrun was a relatively unknown concept in…

What a day it was! As you will see from the photos below, we didn’t have the weather on our side everywhere, but that didn’t stop people coming out and joining parkrun. Have a look at a selection of images from right across the region: A new attendance record for Amager Strandpark, where we were…
