Tøyen parkrun #67

What a fantastic parkrun this was! We had Yvonne and Antonia visit us from the Grimstad Dømmesmoen parkrun planning group. They launch their parkrun on the 4th of May and were here to see how we do it at Tøyen. As it was, it was a brilliant day to come and see how we roll. The run director had been a little mouthy earlier in the week and had challenged parkrun Sweden to a ´jump off´ to see which of the two countries could jump the highest. Our parkrunners really went for it and thanks to our photographer Roland, we have some great shots! Take a look on our facebook page for more of the pictures. 56293788_1968353529958345_7453077626584825856_o 56551769_1968360513290980_6962702269594730496_o56596583_1968361043290927_1456242815288737792_o56595452_1968355849958113_6980819803153891328_o56452014_1968359273291104_5622148903844446208_o
