Tampere parkrun #37 – 30.6.2018

Summer Holiday special

Start of the holiday season in Finland seemed do the trick as we got an overwhelming number of First Timers. Out of 68 participants 28 were there to try the course for the first time. What a great way to start the holidays!

Our regular guest from Turku, Lorna, was there as were also whole family from Jokela. It was great to have you as guests.

One of the local first timers Pasi was also the first at the finish line running with a baby stroller. Time was also admirable 18:10. Atleast a Tampere parkrun record running with 2 children :) Congratulations!

Our junior parkrunners did impressive runs too as both Tapio and Vilma recorded PB's. Nice work!


Tampere parkrun is also very fortunate as we already have a good volunteering group helping out. But it doesn't mean that help is needed or appreciated. Especially during the holidays new friendly faces are definitely needed. Please, ping us through facebook or email if you can help out now and again!

Marshal of the day.

Next week will be interesting as the Sauna restaurant Kuuma opened finally for visitors. Unfortunately swimming is not yet possible but Tampere parkrun definitely recommends trying the Sauna out!

We did finish the parkrun as usual in the cosy Sanna's Cafe.

Oh yes. One more thing. First Volunteer 25 t-shirt has arrived and more are likely to come soon. If you would like to get one of these you know how to get it :)
