The Parkrun movement is something I really love. I have constantly been saying that fitness should not be an expensive decision but an easy one. Parkrun is a massive help to that. This Saturday my home Parkrun, the Boksburg Parkrun, celebrates its first anniversary. Its going to be an outstanding morning with and outstanding team led by Massimo.
The 1st birthday celebration for the Boksburg Parkrun will take place this Saturday (21 May) at the Boksburg Stadium. The Boksburg team are truly outstanding with some incredibly encouraging volunteers and the community has built up over the year. I have not run recently due to tendinitis in my ankle, but have received a couple of messages from the community asking about my absence. Thats just awesome.
For the first birthday there will be a pink theme to raise awareness for Cancer. All participants are encourage to wear pink and spot prizes will be handed out on the day. With the Boksburg record sitting at 700 surely this could be the day we smash that!
Bruce Fordyce, the Comrades Marathon master, brought Parkrun to South Africa in 2011 and it has since grown incredibly with more than 50 different venues across our country.
