Centenary parkrun well attended
IT was like a scene from the popular children’s movie
‘The Lion King’ when locals stampeded down to the Zululand Multi Sport Club to participate in the 100th parkrun last Saturday morning.
More than 400 athletes of all ages ranging from the occasional stroller to the elite speed freaks competed on the day and joined in the celebrations afterwards for the milestone.
The 5km event is held every Saturday morning at 8am at the Zululand Multi Sport Club (ZMSC) and will move back to a 7am start time after 1 October.
The flat route provides a safe and fun platform for individuals and families to come out and exercise in a healthy environment.
To join the parkrun family one must register online for a unique barcode, which allows individuals to see their times and their ranking in their age group within the country.
To register go to www. parkrun.co.za.
