Delta to celebrate birthday on 9 November 2019

It will be Delta parkrun and parkrun SA's 8th birthday on 9 November 2019 and we are planning a wonderful celebration. Please save the date and watch our Facebook page for details! Go to for more info.

We're going to have a very special RD for the occasion :-)


Extra holiday events planned

Great news! Delta parkrun will once again host an event on Christmas Day (at 08h00) and on New Year's Dat (at 09h30). These will be official parkruns and they will count towards your milestones.

Some of the other Joburg parkruns will also hold events on New Year's Day, so you will be able to do two runs that day and both will count towards your official parkrun total. Check them out here:

We would love to host you at Delta parkrun if you are in Joburg over the festive season!


Great news – extra parkruns!

Delta will be hosting additional events on both Christmas Day 2016 (at 08h00) and New Year's Day 2017 (at 07h30). Some of the other Joburg parkruns will also hold events on New Year's Day, so you will be able to do two runs that day and both will count towards your official parkrun total.

If you are in joburg over the holiday season, be sure to join in the fun!


First SA parkrunner joins the 250 Club

Saturday 24 September was a very special day for Delta parkrun. Tracy Rankin became the country's first member of the ultra-exclusive 250 Club. Yes, Tracy has completed 250 parkruns. What makes this even more remarkable is that she has only missed 8 parkruns ... ever. And some of those occasions were for things like, oh you know, running the Two Oceans!!

We are so proud of Tracy and delighted that she chose her home run of Delta for this momentous occasion. What she won't tell you, is that she also volunteered to assist with the pre-run setup on the day.

A true parkrunner! Well done Tracy.


Women’s record at Delta parkrun broken

WOW!!! Congratulations to Tamara Jewett who set a blistering time of 18:50 on 13 August 2016 and is the new female record holder at Delta parkrun. She takes over from Rene Kalmer who held the record of 19:33 set on 18 October 2014.

Well done Tamara!


Christmas and New Year runs

2015 will see Delta parkrun hosting extra events on Christmas Day and on New Year's Day. The only parkrun to be held in Gauteng on Christmas, Delta parkrun will take place at the normal time of 08h00. On New Year's day, you will be able to do two parkruns and they will both qualify as official runs. Delta and Lonehill will start at 07h30 and Golden Harvest and Modderfontein will start at 09h30. Please go to our Facebook page (Delta parkrun) for more information and a map to Modderfontein. We hope to see as many parkrunners as possible and look forward to hosting you. The Delta Team



This year will be the first time we will have an extra parkrun on Christmas day. This parkrun is official and will count towards your club status and total runs. We are also looking for volunteers who will support us. The plan is to keep it very simple. We will not build the finish funnel. We are hoping that the run will attract experienced Delta parkrunners who know the system. If you are available to volunteer on Christmas day please email #christmas
