Hermanus parkrun Event #228, 7th March 2020

In a nutshell: this week 343 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 43 were first timers and 27 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 9 different clubs took part.

Yet again we were blessed with a partly sunny morning in the Hemel en Aarde Valley with a slight westerly breeze stirring the leaves slightly.

We welcomed international visitors from Switzerland, the Netherlands and the UK. Paul SHANKS from the UK recorded a new personal best time. Also identified were 53 visitors from Johannesburg and Cape metropoles and some other events. Included here are Jeandre MARAIS, Colin BANFIELD, Johan VAN DER MERWE, Janine CLEMENTS, Martin MITCHELL and Kathy CHONG with new PB’s. Congratulations with your improvement.

Congratulations to Sam VAN VUUREN and Talitha VAN TONDER, the first finishers today. Leon Brandon DUBE was the first senior male across the finish line while Mia DUK is the first female in the junior age categories. Well done!

We love to celebrate milestones of our participants and today is no exception. Congratulations to
*James LUCKHOFF – he completed his 100 parkrun in Hermanus while he has a total of 107 parkruns.
*Eddie LÖTTER – he completed his 100th volunteer day and
*David VAN GROENINGEN – he entered the 50 Club when he ran his 50th parkrun at Betty’s Bay today.

Every milestone starts of with the very first step we take in parkrun, one week at a time. It is exciting to welcome 20 first time parkrunners in Hermanus today. Hope you will be back for many more until we celebrate your milestones together.
