Tøyen parkrun #65

Spring was in the air and the sun was shining in Oslo on Saturday and this brought out the highest turnout for our event since back in November.

Happy Parkrunner

 

It was great to see so many people heading towards the start line a few minutes before 09:30 am.

Group Start

In total 86 people ran, jogged and walked the course, including several “barnevogner” and a couple of parkrunning dogs . Even better, we had 26 first timers who we hope will become Tøyen parkrun regulars.

We also had several parkrun tourists. Ralph Blackbourn joined us from Bushy parkrun in London, the very first parkrun founded in October 2004.  We also had visitors from Windsor, including Frances Sille who was the first female home.  Мария Koctehko and Елена Koctehkofrom joined us from parkrun Khimki in Russia.

We were also lucky to be able to celebrate parkrun milestone number 300 for Gert Nissen who is the volunteer coordinator at Fælledparken parkrun in Denmark…and yes Gert it really is 4 times up the hill…

Finally we were able to run on ice-free paths, which was reflected in the smiles on our parkrunners' faces.

Tøyen parkrun #63

Med litt snø i løpet av natta, ble det på grensen til vanskelig å løpe idag. Heldigvis var det største uhellet at løpsleder både falt på rumpen på vei til sykkelgarasjen, og sklei mens jeg heiet på løperne. Vi hadde to skumle isflekker som gjemte seg under snølaget men ble markert med rosa pulver, og svingene måtte tas forsiktig, men det var en flott dag for en løpetur. Det mente iallefall 45 løpere, hvor vi hadde turister fra bådeUK, Australia og Canada. Det ble en eksotisk runde for de som ikke er så vant til snø.

Artig var det også at en ankom startlinjen i taxi - har selv prøvd å forklare taxisjåfører i England at, ja, vi skal til det hjørnet av den parken der for å løpe parkrun - du får alltid litt rare blikk.

Etterpå varmet vi oss på kake og kaffe/te/kakao i kafeen.

Tøyen parkrun #62

The cold weather returned with negative temperatures for parkrun this week. Still using the alternative course, and after the thaw through the week it caused a few areas of ice but this did not stop the 61 people who ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 15 were first timers and 5 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 6 different clubs took part. We were lucky enough to have plenty of volunteers on hand to keep everyone safe around these areas.
