Hoedspruit parkrun


Discover the beauty of Hoedspruit, South Africa, while enjoying a 5-kilometer run or walk at the Hoedspruit 5km parkrun, a welcoming event for locals and visitors alike.

The course is 5000m (5k) long. This has been accurately measured by us with a professional measuring wheel. The course is at Protrack training grounds, R40, Hoedspruit. The course is run entirely on trail paths. Some sections of the course may accumulate mud, leaves and puddles after rain. Dependent on availability, marshals will be at key sections of the course, or signs will be in place.

Course Description

This is a one lap anti-clockwise route. The route starts in front of the Thirsty Giraffe next to the car park and heads South towards the training before entering some single track. The route follows single track for approximately 1.5 km’s through Lowveld bush looping around until you are running in a Northerly direction. The route then turns towards the West along the fence line where it opens onto a dirt road. This is followed for approximately 800m until you reach the North-west corner of the property where it turns left again heading South. The road is followed for approximately 500m where you turn left and head West onto some more single track. After about 600m the route opens up again onto a dust road which is a gradual loop of about 1.6km which takes you back to the Thirsty Giraffe
