Hurray for another beautiful winter’s day for a Fish Hoek parkrun.

Our 239th parkrun featured 306 people running, jogging and walking the Fish Hoek course which is a mixture of fields, sandy paths and gravel roads. It's gently undulating terrain with no hills and makes for a great cross country experience. Join us any time!

There were 16 first timers on the day and 54 people recorded new Personal Bests – an amazing stat, we think. Well done to everyone who got a PB and, of course, well done and heartfelt thanks to our band of happy volunteers.

 

Fish Hoek parkrun 237 is another great success!

On a bright, rosy-cheeked Cape Town winter morning, 275 people ran, jogged and walked our beautiful Fish Hoek course. Women, men, children and a diverse array of doggies enjoyed the best of starts to their weekends (well, that's our story and we're sticking to it).

The event, as always, was only made possible by a dedicated set of volunteers who gave freely of their time, not to mention dragged themselves from their warm beds before the dawn to get everything set up. Kudos to all of you.
