Parkrun- Root 44

Audacia Wine Farm hosts the Root 44 Parkrun. It is a weekly, free, 5 km timed run,  Saturday’s at 08h00, and part of the a worldwide parkrun initiative.IMG_20170121_180344.jpg

 

Why I love this Parkrun:

  • You get to run/walk in the beautiful Stellenbosch Winelands, on a farm, through the vineyards, with the mountains as backdrop.20170121_082008.jpg
  • It is a safe option for exercising outside – safety in numbers.20170121_083525.jpg
  •  It’s free.
  • You can run/walk at your own pace.
  • You compete against yourself – every run is timed.
  • You can walk with your baby in a stroller.
  • You can walk with your dog on a leash.
  • You can participate as often or little as you like.
  • No need to enter – just show up.
  • It is a weekly event, every Saturday.
  • And best of all – the Root 44 weekend market.20170121_095718.jpg

Register once on the Parkrun website, print your barcode ticket and bring it along every time you participate to monitor your time and progress.

Bring  a bottle of water –  there is only one water tap along the way.
