Hermanus parkrun Event #221 18 January 2020

What a lovely morning for a parkrun with cooler weather after the welcome rain yesterday with more to come. The sound of the baboons could be heard as we walked the route. Happy to hear them but relieved they did not appear on the route.

This week 315 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 45 were first timers and 28 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 12 different clubs took part. The event was made possible by 26 volunteers.

Congratulations to Lynette King from Bellville parkrun on completing her 100th parkrun at Hermanus parkrun today.

We were happy to welcome international visitors from Austria, Australia, London and Sweden and included with our South African visitors were parkruneers from Bellville, Strand, Rondebosch, Route 44, Centurion and Springbok.

Thank you to our volunteers for the wonderful support provided each week and thank you also to the parkrunners who volunteer each week to fetch and walk/run our HAWS Animal Shelter Dogs who enjoy the outing.
