Tampere parkrun Uuden Vuoden tapahtuma peruttu – New Years day event cancelled

Ikävä kyllä Tampere parkrun ei järjestä Uuden Vuoden tapahtumaa paikallisten Covid määräysten takia.

Unfortunately due to local regulations regarding Covid situation the New Years day event is cancelled.


Tampere parkrun #146 – Pikkujoulut 18.12.2021

Wow - Lots of Christmas Elves and Santa at Tampere parkrun #145 We’d seen Santa (aka joulupukki) on the parkrun route yesterday (on a water jet on the lake!) checking if the parkrun elves were doing a good job of checking the route.


It was really lovely that Santa came back to cheer us all on today too - sweets for the ‘kiltti’ participants and of course the wonderful volunteers!


Congratulations this week to:

- Julia, first time as RD (you did brilliantly!)

- Jyri, who completed his 100th parkrun

- the five first timers (so glad you found us!)


Unsurprisingly there were no PBs today - winter running is slower, and while the course wasn’t too icy at all, caution is required. You can find all the results here:


Also of interest: An otter has been spotted near the parkrun route … I didn’t see it (laughingly I joked that I was running too fast, but the reality is I enjoyed a really pleasant slow jog today, but I will look out for him/her next time I’m here in Tampere!)

Until next time,

Lorna from Turku (one day we will have a parkrun of our own)


Tampere Parkrun is ON on Christmas Day (25.12.) and New Year’s Day (1.1.) unless COVID restrictions...  (normal time, normal place, post parkrun coffee will be at the petrol station, which opens at 10).

The roster is full for Christmas Day but we are still in need of volunteers for New Year’s Day. Please let us know if you can help - email tampere@parkrun.com or leave a message on Facebook

Note: there is no parkrun (anywhere in Finland) on Christmas Eve (24.12.) this year.
