Tampere parkrun #40 21.7.2018

Tampere parkrun #40!

Last week it was the IAAF u20 world championship games and this week it was the Tammerfest that had blocked us from using the normal parkrun route. We had to use alternative route. Once again we got lucky with the weather and the forecasted thunderstorm did not appear. Lucky for us, as this allowed us to enjoy more of the beautiful scenery of Hatanpää park and arboretum.

We also had to use alternative place for after event coffee and went to Linkosuo cafe. This might have been an unfortunate choice of venue, as they had very delicious pastries and any calories that might have been burned with parkrun was more than compensated. After event coffee we also heard news about a new parkrun event opening in Asikkala near the city of Lahti. This is what the parkrun is all about, good people running, walking or volunteering and having interesting conversations while enjoying good coffee (and pastries).

Thank you for Caroline (in the picture) and Hugh Manning for visiting our parkrun from Haga, Sweden!
