What fellow volunteers say about them: Since the start of Bryanston parkrun, Malcolm has assisted the organising team in many ways. Last year he pulled out the biggest surprise when he donated a portable sound and music system to the parkrun. It is one of the many generous and spontaneous gestures he has made to help out at the run. On his 100th run, he brought 1,000 fizzers for the runners to enjoy. Bryanston parkrun fizzes because of the generosity of people like Malcolm.
Despite the cold winter weather we are amazed to see our parkrun numbers still averaging over 30,000 participants each Saturday. To remind readers this is bigger than any road race in South Africa and unlike these other events we attract these numbers and more 52 times a year. Of course this would not be possible…
