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).
