Another sunny parkrun
It was another sunny and this time a hot Saturday for Tampere's 39th parkrun. Even with the unusual heat and the starting line in a slightly different spot (due to the IAAF World 20 Championships), we had 50 people find us and complete the run/walk. This Saturday the route record was made and two parkrunners even got personal bests this week!There was no shortage of first timers this time either: 22 of you ran or walked with us this week for the first time. We hope you enjoyed it and we hope to see you soon again.
There was no shortage of visitors this week. Some of the places people visited from were the UK, Russia, Denmark, the Netherlands, Sweden and Australia.
Two of our volunteers, Leena Heino and Johanna Riippi, have earned the first parkrun shirts for Tampere with 25 times volunteering. Way to go ladies!
It looks like it's going to be another hot day this Saturday, and possibly a bit wet too. We hope to see you there!
On 21.7.2018 the starting point will be closed (Tammerfest) and we use an alternative route: https://www.strava.com/routes/13646204. So we start 14.5. and 21.7.2018 after the Ratina bridge (with the outdoor gym). The toilettes and showers are in use on 21.7.18.
