Løvstien parkrun #14 (english)

By Serap Gonen

Another fun-filled parkrun number 14 in Løvstien, despite the wet and windy conditions.

Bergen folk are strong against the bad weather conditions, a little rain and wind never stops a good run! Eighteen runners in their most waterproof running clothes joined us at Løvstien today, a record number for 2019 so far.

We had six runners making their first appearance on the course this week, including Ben Dales, Erling Hagen and Eva Jellestad. We hope you enjoyed the course and look forward to seeing you again soon!

Our list of first timers also included junior runners Mina, Martin and Nora Nygaard Åsnes running with their father and volunteer tail walker Morten. All three juniors completed the full course with lots of energy and big smiles, and crossed the finish line before their father - fantastic work! We hope they join us again soon (kanskje vi sees neste lørdag Martin? :D)

Despite the wet and windy conditions, one of our regular runners Anders Johannessen managed to bag himself a personal best! All the hard work and training with parkrun every Saturday pays off, many congratulations Anders!

Special thanks to Benjamin Dolva for running the course and giving out tokens straight after. He flew around the course in under 20 minutes!

After the event, parkrun volunteers meet at the Magic Hotel Solheimsviken to upload the results and chat over coffee (or try to transfer photos using new technological systems that are impossible to work...). All runners are welcome to join too!

This week 18 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 6 were a first timers and 1 recorded a new Personal Best. Representatives of 1 club took part. Velkommen alle tilbake!

Special thanks to our 6 volunteers:

Calum Leitch • Benjamin Dolva • Emma Donegan • Serap Gonen • Nonglak Iam-arunothai • Morten Nygaard Åsnes
