Saturday 23 September 2017 marks the  official opening of the Kathu Parkrun with Com-rades Marathon legend, Bruce For-dyce, as  the guest at this presti-gious event.
Every Saturday for the past few months, even when it was freezing cold, a group of determined indivi-duals have been meeting in the mor-ning for a jog or walk close to the Eskom Ferrum Substation.
The run is set for 5 kilometres, but everyone is free to run the course twice or three times as they wish. Who knew that there were so many runners in Kathu ?
The Kathu parkrun is an initiative fully supported by the Northern Cape Mine Managers Association (NCMMA) Wellness Work stream, Lenmed Kathu Private Hospital and Kumba Iron Ore Sishen Mine.
The parkrun is a drive for healthy living and fosters community cohe-sion, as people from all walks of life meet and interact as they run and walk together.
The motto is : Kathu parkrun : You can give up on yourself, but we will never give up on you.
Such is the camaraderie during the
tion starting at 07:00 in the summer and 08:00 in the winter. You can bring your children on their bicycles, off-road prams or dogs on leashes. Adult supervision is required at all times though.
“Let's all come out on the 23rd of September at 08:00 and make heal-thy living a way of life. Bruce For-dyce, the legendary Comrades run-ner, will be there to officially open the Kathu parkrun !”
The parkrun is a global phenome-non, which started in London and New York and has spread to other places around the world. Every Sa-turday you wake up in the morning and get on the move. You can give up on yourself, but we will never give up on you.
Kathu parkrun : Every Saturday at 07:00 from the Eskom Ferrum Sub-station.

parkrun, that when some runners have finished their run, they go back to encourage and fetch the slower runners in the pack. The whole exer-cise is so much fun and so full of life.
To participate, the community is encouraged to go onto the parkrun website www.parkrun.co.za , regi-ster and print the barcode. Parti-cipants are required to produce this barcode at the runs so as to capture their running statistics and also, Discovery Vitality members will be able to gain vitality points from taking part in this run by linking their park-run profile to the Discovery Health Vitality program.
Speaking about the parkrun, Dr Nothando Moyo-Mubayiwa who has been instrumental in setting up the Kathu parkrun commented, “The parkrun is a first for Kathu where people are going to meet and run or walk together and hopefully grow fitter and healthier together. The more we sit and lead a sedentary lifestyle without any exercise, the higher the chances of lifestyle-related diseases and their complica-tions.
“The parkrun is just a 5 kilometre run from the Eskom Ferrum Substa-tion starting at 07:00 in the summer and 08:00 in the winter. You can bring your children on their bicycles, off-road prams or dogs on leashes. Adult supervision is required at all times though.
