Saturday’s Uvongo parkrun was a special one for one dynamic duo.

Martina Cousins and her four-legged friend Duke completed their 250th run, an amazing milestone for the pair.

Five participants, meanwhile, reached the 50-run milestone.

They are Annemie Oosthuizen, Elizabeth Barnard, Elsabe Lombard and Daniel and Stephano Francesconi.

The Uvongo parkrun is a fun, free event every Saturday at 8am organised by volunteers for the benefit of all athletes.

The 5km route starts just off the St Michael’s beach parking lot and leads onto Saints Walk path, continuing adjacent to Orange Rocks Road on grass, past Orange Rocks through the coastal reserve and onto the grass verge between Stafford Avenue and the sea.

From there, it’s onto brick paving leading down and onto Uvongo beach, turning on sand under the cliffs at the gorge and returning the same way, and then 300m on St Michael’s beach up to and ending on the grass in front of C-Bali Restaurant.
