Tøyen parkrun #104

IMG_9930-WP

We had a fantastic turnout of 115 people today. One year ago, there were only 42! Of course, the excellent dry conditions and lack of snow were probably factors in this.

We celebrated the 100th run of our very own passionista, Axel Walø. Congratulations! Thanks to your family for providing delicious cake.

Another of our regulars also snuck in a milestone. Don't think that we didn't notice, Tomasz Puzniak!

We had several visitors from the UK - in fact several of them came from Bushy, the home of parkrun. We also had visitors from Australia. We were also thrilled by having so many first timers. It really warmed my heart that one of them has truly embraced the parkrun spirit and has already signed up to volunteer next week.

With such a great group of regular runners, who often volunteer, most of our regulars are only just coming up on their 50th milestones. That means that we expect to have lots more celebrations coming up in the next few months - and hopefully more cake!

The demolition work at Tøyenbadet begins next week, but don't worry. We'll be on as usual, with the usual provisos for the weather. Keep an eye on our Facebook page to see where we'll be starting.

Statistics: This week 115 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 35 were first timers and 8 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 14 different clubs took part.

We saw 12 first timers join us and 14 people even got personal bests!

Tøyen parkrun #102

This week 109 people ran, jogged and walked the winter course, of whom 32 were first timers and 10 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 18 different clubs took part.

 

We had visitors from Australia, Michigan USA and London. It was a mild and green January morning and the course was happily clear of ice but we used the alternative course because there is stubborn ice on the path leading to Mud Hill.

 

Tøyen parkrun veteran and course record holder Runar Sæther was the fastest finisher, completing the course in 17:39.

Runar Sæther was a welcome face returning to Tøyen - and was the fastest finisher

We would like to remind parkrunners to always bring their paper barcodes! If the paper is getting a bit scrappy, you can print a new one and laminate it.

Event number 101
4th January 2020

The weather had been usually mild but a clear cold night meant there was a fine frost and caution needed but not enough to stop our hardy parkrunners. Still using the alternative course this week 100 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 32 were first timers and 8 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 14 different clubs took part. We had tourists from Australia, The UK and South Africa.  2020-01-04 10.10.092020-01-04 12.19.23

Last of 2019, First of 2020

The final parkrun of 2019 took place on Saturday 28th December, the rather damp, foggy, snowy conditions did little to deter the 39 people that joined us to run, jog or walk the course, of whom 16 were first timers and 2 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 5 different clubs took part. The event was made possible by 9 volunteers: Stuart GREIG • Mark WHITE • Patrick Pulido ULVANG • Odd GANGÅS • Thomas GREIG • Min GREIG • Linn Jenssen ACKLAM • Beverley J. H. GRYTING • Annie EYRE pr_rr_2020_1 New Years Day parkrun was the 100th event, we were met with pleasant conditions, but solid ice is still present around the back of the barnehage and on up the hill so we continued with the alternate course.  We were very lucky that in the absence of an open café Cristina had baked cakes doughnuts, buns and pepperkake for our fantastic volunteers and the parkrunners that joined us. pr_rr_2020_2pr_rr_2020_3 pr_rr_2020_4
