Pokkinen parkrun

What is Pokkinen parkrun?

A free, fun, and friendly weekly 5k community event. Walk, jog, run, volunteer or spectate – it's up to you!

When is it?

Every Saturday at 9:30.

Where is it?

The event takes place at Pokkisenpuisto, Ojakatu 2, 90100 Oulu. See Course page for more details.

What does it cost to join in?

Nothing - it's free! but please register before you first come along. Only ever register with parkrun once and don't forget to bring a scannable copy of your barcode (request a reminder). If you forget it, you won't get a time.

How fast do I have to be?

We all take part for our own enjoyment. Please come along and join in whatever your pace!

Pokkinen parkrun needs you!

It is entirely organised by volunteers - email pokkinen@parkrun.com to help.

We're friendly!

Every week we grab a post parkrun coffee in Kahvila Kiikku, Ainolanpolku 1, 90100 Oulu. Kahvila Kiikku is open during summer time and it has its own greenhouse and terrace. It is located at Ainolanpuisto, 600m away from the finish line. During winter months, we announce the cafe at the start of parkrun - please join us!

Juoksun jälkeiset kahvit

Kesän aikana käydään Kahvila Kiikussa parkrunin jälkeen. Kahvilassa on terassi ja kasvihuoneita. Kahvila on Ainolanpuistossa 600 m maalista. Talven aikana mainitaan kahvilaa tapahtuman alussa
