What’s your favourite things about parkrun?
Det är gratis och det är lätt att vara med. Det arrangeras varje vecka året om. Fikat efteråt. Att man med sin streckkod kan delta på alla parkrunevent, runt om i världen.
That it’s free, and easy to take part in. That parkrun takes place every week right through the year. The fika afterwards. And that you can use your barcode at all parkrun events, all around the world.

And what’s the best thing about your home parkrun?
Fin och vacker bana. Bra fikaställe som ligger nära start och mål. Bra, härlig och god gemenskap och stämning bland deltagare och funktionärer.
A beautiful course. A good café that’s right by the start and finish. A great community and atmosphere between the people taking part and the volunteers.

If you’ve run parkruns other than your home run, which are your favourites, and why?
Växjösjön parkrun. De har en fin och vacker bana runt Växjösjön.

In one sentence – how would you convince someone who’s never been to parkrun before that they should go along and try it?
Alla kan delta, ingen tävling och det är alltid gratis.
Everyone can take part, it’s not a race, and it’s always free.

parkrun har bidragit till att jag har fått kontinuitet med löpningen. Det har också gjort så att jag även springer på vintern. För mig är lördag en självklar parkrundag antingen som deltagare eller funktionär.
parkrun has helped me get some continuity in my running. It’s meant that I also now run in the winter too. For me Saturday is definitely a parkrunday, either as a participant or as a volunteer.

My special parkrun birthday present!
