Amager Fælled and Fælledparken parkrun in Copenhagen had the pleasure of hosting the Copenhagen New Years Day double.
It was a great success with participants from Canada, Ghana, England, Finland, Ireland, Rumania, Russia, Scotland, South Africa, Sweden and Wales. (We hope we didn’t miss anyone out there!)
With around 170 first time visitors at Amager Fælled and around 190 at Fælledparken, both places set new participants records with respective turnouts of 231 and 269. Fælledparken parkrun actually ran out of tokens, so they had to write down the names of the last 19 finishers.
There is only around 7 km. between the two parkruns, so one group ran between the events, another group biked, and a big group took the metro, all looked after by Danish guides. A big thanks to everyone who helped to make this event a huge success, your help was much appreciated!
Some came early so that they where able to take part in Malmö Ribersborg parkrun on the 28th December, and others are planning to stay until the 4th January so they can go over the bridge to Malmö then. A group of around 20 parkrunners also travelled to Malmö on the 31th December to do a ‘freedom’ run there.
3 other events in the Nordics also hosted New Year’s Day events, with Haga in Stockholm, Tøyen in Oslo and Stavanger parkrun all hosting events. It was also Tøyen’s 100th event too, and they baked some gingerbread hearts to celebrate. Congratulations!
Förra veckan meddelade vi att vi hade slutfört vårt COVID-19-ramverk, vår plan för hur vi kan starta upp parkrun på sikt. Där beskriver vi hur event kommer att fungera i länder där smittorisken fortfarande kvarstår. Du kan läsa mer om vår ”återkomst till parkrun” här. Här är denna veckas uppdatering från Tom Williams,…
On Friday last week we published our provisional COVID-19 Framework, describing how parkrun events are likely to return where there remains an underlying level of the virus. We intentionally published the Framework in advance of it being appropriate to open any of the 21 parkrun countries that remain closed, to enable us to progress…
