parkrun across Sweden

So parkrun is up and running in Hagaparken, but why there?   Well, as well as being a fantastic location for a parkrun it was also a park I knew well myself, having worked nearby and run around hundreds of times, planning parkrun routes in my head! And whilst it’s great to have the first…

Post parkrun pastries

Part of the enjoyment of parkrun is hanging out afterwards, having a fika with friends and chatting through today’s parkrun with people that you’ve maybe met out on the course.

Who will be the 3 millionth registered parkrunner?!

You may have noticed your parkrun ID number and wondered what that long number was on the end? If you’ve registered in Sweden since parkrun arrived then it’ll probably be a 7 digit number starting with 2,7xx,xxx or 2,8xx,xxx. Well, it refers to the number of registered parkrunners out there, and the numbers are assigned…

Mental Health Run, en berättelse

Höstens första kalla dag, så typiskt tänker jag och rotar i skåp och lådor efter vantar och överdragskläder. Lätt bortskämd efter en varm och solig höst, där problemet oftare har varit att det varit för varmt att springa mitt på dagen.

All you need is…..your barcode! (and how to find it again if you’ve lost it)

So, if you’re reading this newsletter it means that you’ve registered for parkrun with a link to print out your barcode.   So far in Sweden we’re doing pretty well with people turning up with their barcodes – over 80% of people have had them with them so far. And if you’ve lost your link…
