Five “are we there yet?” parkruns

Many parkrunners are spoiled for choice when it comes to choosing which parkrun to visit each week. But for some, their home event is hundreds of miles from the next closest parkrun.   We take a look at five of the most remote parkruns around the globe…   1.  parkrun Novosibirsk (parkrun Новосибирск набережная), Siberia, Russia  …

parkrun HQ goes Nordic! – part 1: Sweden, Norway and Denmark

Thursday 24 May – Day 1   The parkrun HQ tour of the Nordics needed to be a tightly-run ship, as there was a lot of ground to be covered. Straight off the plane we headed north to Uppsala parkrun, where we were greeted by three members of the core team, Mattias, Eleanor and Regina….

parkrun Nordic 1000+ runners!

It’s now over 9 years since parkrun started up in the Nordics, with the first event in Copenhagen’s Amager Faelled parkrun in early May 2009.

I did it!

I’m not a fast runner (Editors note: everything is relative Claire!) in fact since discovering parkrun back in 2012 I have managed to run the 5km distance in less than 30 minutes just once, and that course was nice and flat!

Vi hjälps åt!

Jag har alltid varit periodare när det gäller löpning (läs, hatade löpning förut men var lite tvungen…). Har under senaste 1½ året sprungit regelbundet, mycket tack vare parkrun. Jag kan ses på lördagarsmornar rusandes iväg med en minst sagt övertänd röd irländsk setter som heter Maggan. I skrivande stund har jag sprungit hela 27 st…
