Run report parkrun # 307 – 09/11/2019

Bring the whole family.

parkrun is about being part of a community.

 

Today 294 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 20 were first timers and 21 recorded new Personal Bests. Our male course record was broken by Malusi (MJ) JUDAS, who, unfortunately, didn't have a barcode. Therefore he appears as 'Unknown' on the results list. He recorded a time of 16:24 minutes.
Three parkrunners achieved milestones: Kirsten BELL ran her 50th parkrun, and both Amanda MUIR and Robin WOOD ran their 100th parkrun.
A big 'Thank You' to our new Run Director, Glenda, and her team of volunteers for a smooth and well organized parkrun. You guys rock!

 

Run Report parkrun # 265 – 05/01/2019

Blimey, but it was muggy this morning, with the going soft to firm. Nevertheless, 339 of us pretended it was a perfect morning for a PB – and for 21 overachievers, that was indeed the case. Well done, you lot. We hosted 31 first-timers and were spoiled by 21 excellent volunteers, each of whom was better looking than the next. Allegedly. Lowering cloud pulled in late in the run but we all had more fun than you could shake a big stick at. Join us next Saturday for another legendary Fish Hoek parkrun, peeps!

In the meantime, feast your eyeballs on today's results: http://www.parkrun.co.za/fishhoek/results/weeklyresults/?runSeqNumber=265

 

Run report for event #264 by Chris Jansen

And we’re off! What better way to start the new year than a parkrun at Fish Hoek! We’ve had an awesome turnout of 341 eager and willing individuals this morning that braved the heat and sand to complete their New year's resolution of getting fitter, stronger and healthier.

All in all a very successful day with tons of volunteers showing what parkrun is actually about - giving back to the community. Without you guys these events would not be possible and we wouldn't be starting each Saturday with a smile on our faces. Please be sure to volunteer and put your name up on our roster for future events.

We also had a major turnout of tourist braving the Western Cape from all corners of the country. We want to thank all our tourist for supporting us throughout the holiday season and wish them safe travels back home.

We want to thank our Run director, Caroline for sailing a smooth and efficient ship this morning and making sure everyone had a great time.

Here's our results for the week: http://www.parkrun.co.za/fishhoek/results/weeklyresults/?runSeqNumber=264

For everyone else, here's a parkrun saying to remember:
Here's to seeing sunrises, legendary tailwalkers, footsteps on pavements, beaches and paths.

Here's to barcodes tied to shoelaces, pb’s and pacing a friend.

Here's to parkrun friends and parkrun dogs. The pram runners. The cheerleaders. The kids.

Here's to high fives and beaming smiles. Sweating in the summer. And beanies in the winter. Piles of sports gear in the laundry and shoes by the door.

Here's to getting up early to volunteer. To parkrun ERS of the month and those who come every week and just do the best they can.

Here's to doing what others don't - so you can do things you never dreamed of.

Here's to friends. To family. To parkrunners. To you.
