This saturday Sweden will host the first FigureRunning tournament in Hallstahammar. Of course we have done global competitions before, but this is the first tournament where competitors all run and the same time in the same place.
The tournament is organised by one of the first Swedish FigureRunners, Emil Berglund, and the city of Hallstahammar. People are challenged to run art and afterwards the public can vote for the most creative artpiece, amongst others in the local library.
We are looking forward to see the results! Want to join?
