The sunny weather was a perfect complement to an already exciting day as park-runners joined in on the fun morning. The 5km timed event held at the Len Rutter Park kicked off with a vibrant crowd who were thrilled to be alongside health enthusiasts who marched towards their personal set of fitness goals.

It was a particularly special parkrun for Thandi Zililo, who completed her 250th parkrun, joining Bruce Fordyce in the incredible achievement. Overall, the organisers were pleased with the turn-out and are eager to grow their parkrun family.
