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…
