Welcome to the photo round-up from the weekend’s parkruns, where we had 30 events operating again for the first time since November. That meant over 1000 brilliant participants again, nearly 200 fabulous volunteers, over 170 people registering this week, and more than 100 people taking part in a parkrun for the very first time. Fantastic!

We start in Umeå, Sweden, where Broparken parkrun started for the first time this Saturday, a great addition to the parkrun family! A huge team of volunteers made sure everything ran smoothly on their first event.

A glorious sunny day for Damhusengen parkrun in Köpenhamn, but not quite summer temperatures yet!


A big thumbs up for Dømmesmoen parkrun (photo taken from an earlier event, but it was too good not to share)

Always a great set of photos from Esbjerg parkrun to capture the Saturday morning mood, a chance to get out and walk, jog or run and then catch up with friends afterwards.
