The first parkrun weekend in September, and appropriately there was a little bit of an autumnal feel in the air this Saturday. Here’s lots of great photos from right around the region:

We also had a Swedish parkrun record set on Saturday when Andreas McConville ran 15.18 at this week’s Uppsala parkrun. Despite the Scottish sounding name Andreas is a local Swede and not a parkrun tourist flying in to take the record!
Approaching the finish at Haga parkrun
The 10,000th runner to cross the line at Haga parkrun was presented with a traditional Swedish kranskulla!
At parkrun, we are lucky to run in some stunning locations, both around the Nordics and all over the world. Indeed, one of the great benefits of parkrun is to encourage people to get outside and discover the nature around them. But what happens when the beauty of the park gets spoilt by the blight…
Following in fast succession from parkrun Nordics’ highest and second highest attendances, this week had the third most parkrunners in our history, with over 1300 people taking part across our 25 events on Saturday. Here’s how it looked: Party time at Örebro parkrun this week….. …..their Selfie frame has arrived! It was Tampere…
