After 15 months away, or 66 missing parkrun Saturdays, parkrun finally made a much-awaited reappearance in Denmark.
7 events were back, with only Faelledparken having to wait a little longer to return, due to the Euro 2020 championships occupying the parkrun course.
And it was great to see that turnout was in line with pre-COVID 19 numbers, even on what was an extremely warm day for mid-June.
For Amager Faelled parkrunner Per Thorup, it had been an especially long wait, as he was poised on both 249 completed parkruns and 24 volunteering instances! Happily he was able to achieve both milestones yesterday, making it a return to remember.
parkrun Nibe returned with a new start time, having changed their previous 10.00 start time to fall in line with the other Danish parkrun events.
Elsewhere things went smoothly with all events using the updated Virtual Volunteer app for both timing and scanning.
It already feels like parkrun has never been away! Welcome back to parkrun on Saturday.
