Paarl se eerste parkrun – 9 April 2016

9 April 2016 was die opening van Paarl se eerste parkrun by die pragtige Arboretum.  Burgemeester Gesie van Deventer het die oggend afgeskop deur almal te verwelkom en het ook deelgeneem in hierdie spesiale geleentheid.

Na die tyd het die bekende Bruce Fordyce oor geneem en die parkrunners vermaak deur sy sin vir humor.  ‘n Totaal van 704 parkrunners was by die opening, wat Paarl parkrun een van die top parkruns maak om so groot hoeveelheid mense te bereik!

Paarl parkrun was bevoorreg om die Fordham familie van Richmond parkrun in die VK by ons opening te hê.  Die eerste Paarl parkrun rekord wat nou verbeter moet word is tans 16:20!  Paarl parkrun wil dankie sê vir elke parkrunner wat die opening bygewoon het om hierdie geleentheid ‘n groot sukses te kon maak!  ‘n Groot dankie vir elke vrywilliger – julle tyd en moeite vir elke parkrun word waardeer!  Paarl parkrun hoop om almal weer te sien by ons tweede parkrun op 16 April 2016, om 08:00 by Paarl Arboretum.  Reën of sonskyn, ons parkrun!

 

Paarl parkrun Inaugural Event – 9 April 2016

On 9 April 2016 Paarl's inaugural parkrun was launched at the beautiful Arboretum.  Mayoress Gesie van Deventer kicked off the morning by welcoming everyone and also took part in this special occasion.

Afterwards, the well-known Bruce Fordyce took over and entertained the parkrunners with his sense of humour.  A total of 704 parkrunners were at the launch, making Paarl parkrun one of the top parkruns to achieve such a big crowd!

Paarl parkrun was also privileged to have the Fordham family from Richmond parkrun in the UK at the launch.  Our first runner finished in 16:20 minutes, setting the first record to beat at Paarl parkrun!  Paarl parkrun wants to say thank you to every parkrunner who attended the launch and made this occasion such a huge success!  A big thank you to each volunteer – your time and effort for each parkrun is being appreciated! Paarl parkrun hopes to see everyone again at our second parkrun on 16 April 2016, starting at 08:00 at the Paarl Arboretum.  Rain or sunshine, we parkrun!

Off they go
