Hermanus parkrun Event #223, 01 February 2020

Another lovely day for a parkrun; cloudy and warm with the forest providing some welcome shade.

At our pre-event briefing we welcomed, from amongst others, parkrunners from the UK and from Root 44 in Stellenbosch. We also welcomed first time parkrunners from Hermanus as well as our parkrunners with their dogs.

This week 383 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 55 were first timers and 46 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 12 different clubs took part. This is a really good turnout for Hermanus parkrun for this time of the year which we are thrilled about.

The event was made possible by 27 volunteers. Thank you to all.

Congratulations to Jean-Pierre Bruwer; Zelna Bruwer and Mias Calitz on completing their 100th parkrun today and Catherine Lewis on her 50th.

Hermanus parkrun are happy to hear that Tayla, a very special pitbull from HAWS (our local animal shelter), who loved coming to parkrun with Leon and actually coming in first a couple of times with Leon, has been adopted. Leon bought Sophie along from HAWS today and they came in first!!!
