Tampere parkrun #105 – 19.10.2019


Congratulations to today’s first finisher Jarkko JÄRVENPÄÄ who recorded a time of 15:24 !!! Wow! A new course record!

There were 40 of us trailing behind him (some closer than others!) and our wonderful tailwalker Erkki TIILIKKA brought up the rear and saw us all safely home.

It was wonderful to have seven first timers with us today (including one tourist from China) and a huge well done to the five participants today who recorded PBs!

Thanks to Nina HAIKONEN for being our RD today, and of course all the volunteers without whom parkrun just wouldn’t happen!

We were started off well this morning with a fantastic warm up for everyone led by Suvi AHLAJÄRVI. Thank you so much for doing this Suvi it was really fun and well-appreciated!

We were jolly lucky with the weather today. It’s been typical autumn break weather this week and it was raining cats and dogs when we put the U turn mark out this morning; but the rain eased and we ran in relatively dry conditions with just a few puddles to negotiate or splash through.

Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on theTampere parkrun Results Page.

The event today was made possible by 10 volunteers: Nina HAIKONEN • Jarmo TIILIKKA • Leena HEINO • Mika PULKKINEN • Elviira HEINO • Aino AALTO • Erkki TIILIKKA • Lorna Stella KOSKELA • Suvi AHLAJÄRVI • Anastasios TSIMPLINAS

Hope to see you next week same time (Saturday, 9:30am) same place (Laukonsilta, near Ratina). If you would like to volunteer for one of the tasks in the next few weeks do please sign up or let us know. Your help is appreciated!
