ONE IN A MILLION
08 February 2019
The really exciting news this week is that parkrun South Africa welcomed its 1 millionth registered member. This seems incredible when we consider that just over 7 years ago we numbered just 26.
7 years ago none of us could have imagined the future would be this spectacular. In those 7 years a staggering 6.8 million runs and walks have taken place.
At its capacity the famous Ellis Park rugby stadium hosts about 60,000 fans for a major game. The Comrades marathon has a field of about 25000.
On a good Saturday morning parkrun Southern Africa boasts close to 60,000 participants, and this happens 52 times a year.
Talk about inspiration!
