Løvstien parkrun event #10

Skrevet av Emma Donegan

A cold wind kept temperatures low this morning for Løvstien parkrun. Our tenth parkrun saw 10 runners turn up for the timed 5k supported by our very own Heidi Espedal as tail walker.

Eleven runners took part including UK parkrun tourists from Cambridge, John and Stephanie Williams, welcome. This week saw three personnel bests including first man home Lars Thore Fadnes closely followed by Stein Henrik Olaussen, who helped hand out finish tokens, thank you. First woman home for the second week running was Kristin Husby.

Thank you to everyone who took part today in cold conditions and well done to our volunteers, without them there would be no event. If you can help out at future events we can provide training in bell ringing, timing or any of the volunteer roles, just message or speak to us. Check out the fun in our photo album.

Post run coffee today we were joined by parkrun tourists and all the volunteers, great way to warm up and discuss running. Special mention to our tail walker Heidi, who for the first time ran the parkrun course she set up. We will see her in the New Year and look forward to hearing about her parkrun tourism.

This week 11 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 3 were first timers and 3 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 3 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 5 volunteers:

Calum Leitch • Emma Donegan • Stein Henrik Olaussen • Heidi Espedal • Serap Gonen

The female record is held by Lina RIVEDAL who recorded a time of 20:24 on 20th October 2018 (event number 2).
The male record is held by Nikolas Jon AARLAND who recorded a time of 18:08 on 10th November 2018 (event number 5).

 

Perfect conditions for parkrun #9

Av Emma Donegan

Perfect conditions this morning for løvstien parkrun. The course was previously checked to ensure the recent snow fall did not affect the event today.

It was great to see more families taking part today including Silje Bentsen with a stroller, recently moved here from Johannesburg. Twenty runners took part including parkrun tourists from Basingstoke, UK. Only one personal best by Vitor Hugo Moritsugu, taking 14 seconds off his previous best. Still it was Benjamin Dolva who was first home and then able to help out with finish tokens with first woman home, Kristin Husby. Everyone was supported by our volunteer bell ringer Henrik Barry.

Thank you to everyone who took part today its good to see new and regular faces attending. We have plenty of volunteer roles if you would like to get involved and there’s always a post run coffee happening too. Photos of the nineth event have been posted and we hope you like them.

This week 20 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 6 were first timers and 1 recorded a new Personal Best. Representatives of 3 different clubs took part.

Mildt og fint i utgave #8 av parkrun i Løvstien

Av Heidi Espedal

Det var mildt og vindstille da parkrun i Løvstien satte i gang for åttende gang denne første lørdagen i desember. 15 løpere og fire frivillige var med, inkludert turister fra Skottland og Australia - veldig kjekt med besøk! Forholdene må ha vært gode: nesten 50% satte ny, personlig rekord i løypen! Det var Benjamin som var først i mål - han er så rask at han både rekker å løpe og hjelpe til. Blant kvinnene var det Toril Grande som var først i mål, med Liv Hege Furnes Hult like bak. Som dere ser av av det ene bildet er det pågående gravearbeid langs stien - men enn så lenge går det greit å løpe forbi. Vi følger med. Takk til alle som kom - og velkommen tilbake neste lørdag! Spesiell takk til Emma som har tatt de fine bildene!

This week 15 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 5 were first timers and 7 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 3 different clubs took part.

Rapport fra parkrun #7

Av Nikolas Jon Aarland

17 løpere og fem frivillige var med på dagens parkrun i Løvstien. Nydelig vær og mange gode løpsopplevelser i det fullmånen gikk ned bak Askøy og solen kom frem bak Ulriken. Og selv om temperaturene krøp like under 0-tallet i morgentimene var det til og med noen som løp i shorts! Første løper i mål i dag var Lars Thore Fadnes, tett etterfulgt Sverre Nøkleby, som vanlig ga han absolutt alt hele veien inn. Tredjemann ble Kjell Erik Gjerstad, i den nevnte shortsen. Det blir spennende å se hvor langt ut i vintersesongen vi får se denne friske bekledningen. Raskeste kvinne i dag ble Liv Hege Furnes Hilt. Fem løpere satte ny personlig rekord i dag, i en av de tøffeste parkrun-løypene i Nord-Europa. Fire løpere var med for aller første gang, vi håper de fikk et godt inntrykk av parkrun, og at vi får se dem igjen flere ganger fremover. Vi minner om at parkrun går av stabelen hver lørdag, klokken 9:30. Vi håper du vil være med, enten du har lyst til å løpe, eller hjelpe til som frivillig, alle er velkommen til å bli med på laget!
