Zululand Observer - Monday - - ZO SPORT - Richard Springo­rum

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.
