On 8 March 2020 - we celebrated International Women's day - but we honored all the lovely ladies who did the parkrun with us! We celebrated a 250th run with a Female - Well done Surina De Jager on this great achievement!
The Voortrekker Monument parkrun welcomed 563 parkrunners who ran, jogged and walked the course. Of the 563 parkrunners - we had 116 first-timers and with the help of pacers and determination of the parkrunners themselves - we celebrated 128 NEW Personal Bests - so well done to every one of the 563 runners who finished and cheered each other on!
parkruns are made possible by volunteers and without these heroes - it won't be possible - after a difficult week with appeals for volunteers - we managed to gather 18 volunteers who cheered you on - and ensured the event took place. Thank you to our AWESOME HEROES:
Rachael MCKEE • Gareth GREER • Yolandi MEULKE • Farron YSSEL • Heinz MEULKE • Norbert HANNWEG • Nadia BELL • Carel VAN AARDT • Marlene KILLOCH • Vaughan KILLOCH • Sandra MANSVELDER • Jaimee WOLFAARDT • Nadine GREER • Jocelyn GREER • Nolwazi DUBE • Lusinda LANDMAN • Thea VAN DEN HEEVER • Lisa SWART
