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.

The event was made possible by 5 volunteers:

Calum Leitch • Emma Donegan • Benjamin Dolva • 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).
