Plett’s Harkerville parkrun

Plett’s Harkerville parkrun

Plett's Harkerville parkrun is a timed 5km run or walk, every Saturday.  Harkerville parkrun is a great concept to get out there and get moving, making the town fitter, one Saturday at a time.  It is not a race.  It is a free, timed event.  Walkers welcome.  But NO DOGS ALLOWED!

Don’t forget to register at www.parkrun.co.za/harkerville - print and bring your BARCODE with you.  No barcode, no result.

Plett's Harkerville parkrun will start from just outside the Harkerville Saturday market. Turn off the N2 towards the market, and park on the left field, next to Sassenheim.

Visit the Harkerville parkrun Facebook page, and if you have any queries, send a message via Facebook Messenger, or send an email to harkervilleoffice@parkrun.com.
