On Thursday 8th of June we took part in RunFest Turku, a charity event arranged in and around Kupittaa. Along with our own Arado runners we invited clients and friends for a jog, or just to hang around our picnic tent. To top off the run we also had a grill heated up for a hearty end-feast alongside refreshments.

Even though the day was somewhat cloudy, there was luckily no rain and the people at our campsite were all full of sunshine. Although the running portion was designed to be a relay race, all of our troops started together and those who had the stamina continued for more than just the one lap of 4,2km. The last one standing turned out to be Jarno, who after running three laps with Anssi was given a forgotten number tag and decided to take that one for a spin as well, ending up in a total of four laps!

For the blazing fires of our barbecue, in addition to hot dogs and condiments, Stefano had also prepared something special. He had just returned from a trip to Italy and brought along with him quite a treat: meaty Italian sausages, full of flavour, handmade by an artisan from near his hometown. Grazie mille for the delicacies Stefano!

All in all the event was a success and I'm sure we'll be taking part in the funtivities next year as well. A big thanks to the organisers and everyone who participated!
