Paarl parkrun - Weekly Free 5km Timed Run

What is Paarl parkrun?

It is a 5km run - it's you against the clock.

When is it?

Every Saturday at 8:00am.

Where is it?

The event takes place at Paarl Arboretum, Klein Parys Sports Complex Road, Off R101 between Bergriver Boulevard circle and Jan van Riebeeck Drive circle, Paarl, 7646. See Course page for more details.

What does it cost to join in?

Nothing - it's free! but please register before your first run. Only ever register with parkrun once. Don't forget to bring a printed copy of your barcode (request a reminder). If you forget it, you won't get a time.

How fast do I have to be?

We all run for our own enjoyment. Please come along and join in whatever your pace!

Paarl parkrun needs you!

It is entirely organised by volunteers - email to help.

We're friendly!

Every week we grab a post parkrun coffee in a local café - please come and join us!
