This week we had a fantastic turnout with 167 people who came along and celebrated our 2nd birthday. 53 were first timers and 30 recorded new Personal Bests. This smashed our previous attendance record of 134 people set in August 2018. Over the past two years Tøyen parkrun has seen 1,700 people register and in total we have completed 29,000km together.
The sun was out, the flags were up and some of our volunteers had even brought some treats to ensure we had a proper party! We had even more to celebrate as one of our regulars, Linda was doing her 50th parkrun and Runar and Laura from the parkrun Norway core team had recently wed. We were joined by visitors from Florida, Poland, Germany and the UK.
The event was made possible by 9 volunteers:
Daz HARDING • Sharon QUINCE • Laura BAKKER • Runar SAETHER • Sam QUINCE • Mark WHITE • Helen RIST • Patrick Pulido ULVANG • Bjørn Ragnar TANGEN
