We joined the awesome, worldwide parkrun initiative in May 2013, and it’s been a great addition to ROOT44 Market, offering families a fantastic way to get outdoors while enjoying the beautiful surroundings of the winelands. These free, weekly, 5 km timed runs happen all around the world every Saturday, though we’re pretty sure our route through Audacia’s vineyards with the gorgeous Stellenbosch and Helderberg mountain ranges around you, must be one of the globe’s most scenic!

parkrun is an all-weather event and happens every Saturday at 8am sharp. It’s a family-orientated affair, catering for all ages and fitness levels, which means it’s suitable for serious athletes and those who would like to just take a leisurely stroll along the route instead.

The best thing about ROOT44 parkrun, is that after getting your blood pumping and oxygenating your system, our ROOT44 food and beverage vendors will tempt you with all manner of scrumptious culinary delights and refreshments – a welcome reward after a little exertion.

You can take part as often or as little as you like. Just remember to register by clicking the button below, then print and bring along your barcode each time you run so that you can be timed and monitor your progress each week. You only need to register once, and you can use your barcode to take part in any parkrun event around the country.

We look forward to seeing you there!
