Photo round-up from our record-breaking weekend in the Nordics

Bergen wet cover

This Saturday at parkrun in the Nordics we had more people taking part than ever before, 1184 runners, joggers and walkers completed the 23 events that took place on Saturday.


That’s even more impressive considering that the west of the region was either very wet, or at least had weather forecasts saying that it would be!


Well done to everyone who took part on Saturday and a big round of applause for all of the wonderful volunteers. Here’s the photo album from Saturday:

A sense of belonging

“It feels like my body is packing up on me.”   That’s how I described it to my parents one Sunday morning in August 2015. This was after a few months of feeling strange, and regularly not being able to sleep due to a pounding head and feeling flushed. I took my blood pressure on…
