About Us

Oudtshoorn parkrun is a FREE weekly 5km event for runners of all standards, which takes place every Saturday at 7:00am (October - March) & 8:00am (April - September) in the Surval Boutique Olive Estate, R328, Cango Caves / Buffelsdrift Road, Oudtshoorn, 6625. PLEASE NOTE that dogs are not allowed at this event. It is not a race against other runners, but a 5k timed run and it can really be whatever you want it to be, whether that's for fun or as part of a training plan.

It offers an opportunity for all the local community, male or female, young or old, to come together on a regular basis to enjoy this beautiful park and get physically active into the bargain. We want to encourage people to jog or run together irrespective of their ability – this event is truly open to all and best of all it really is FREE!

Taking part is easy – just register before your first ever parkrun. The great thing is that you only ever need to do this once! Then just set your alarm for Saturday morning and get yourself there!

Every week we grab a post parkrun coffee in a local café - please come and join us! Maybe swap stories about your run that day, chat to other runners over a cup of tea or coffee and just be an important part of this new running community.

So whether you are a complete novice looking to get yourself started on your own "running journey" or a seasoned athlete wanting to use this as a part of your training schedule, you’re welcome to come along and join us.


  • Surval Boutique Olive Estate: PARKRUN SURVAL STYLE. We all know the importance of exercise - some people get sufficient exercise in the course of their daily jobs, but most of us with a more sedentary lifestyle need to incorporate additional exercise in order to maintain a healthy body. Because science increasingly shows that physical activity is fundamental to good health, we are committed to being part on the global Parkrun to help inspire people to be active while enjoying mother nature and the crisp clear Karoo air. We invite people from all ages to a luxurious and exclusive world where time stands still, letting you treasure every moment on your 5km parkrun and leaving nothing to be desired. Surval Boutique Olive Estate is situated at the foot of the majestic Swartberg Mountain range (a UNESCO World Heritage site) in the Klein Karoo. Surval Boutique Olive Estate offers panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and the Schoemanshoek Valley. For the hungry we offer a fine dining experience second to none as well as a special parkrun breakfast every Saturday morning. Our elegant restaurant offers a fine dining menu, inspired by the produce of the local Klein Karoo region, complimented by international flair and a comprehensive wine list, offering only the finest and most highly rated varieties and vintages that South Africa can offer. Su Casa, our restaurant, is also a member of Confr?rie de la Cha?ne des R?tisseurs, an international gastronomic society founded in Paris in 1950, which traces its origin back to 1248, and devoted to choice dining and the camaraderie of the table. Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity.
