This weekend we had a visit in Sweden from the one and only ‘MC parkrunner’, (aka James Mulholland) pictured here at Haga parkrun: This of course gives us an excuse to publish his most excellent parkrun themed video: “parkrun – start your Saturday”!   Click and enjoy – but beware – it’s very catchy!

Because last Saturday, whilst setting up the course at Tokoinranta parkrun in Helsinki, an opportunist thief stole a bag containing a range of parkrun equipment ready for that day’s event.   Of course Run Director Karlina Ozolina had…
