The 5km parkrun at Egweni River Lodge offers a unique blend of fitness and natural beauty, as participants embark on a refreshing Saturday morning run through the captivating landscapes surrounding the Egweni River Lodge, embracing both the spirit of adventure and the serene ambiance of this stunning location.

The course is 5000m (5k) long. This has been accurately measured by us with a professional measuring wheel. The course is at Egweni River Lodge, Parys. The course is run on a mixture of grass and 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

The course is a flat, out and back along the Vaal River with 2 loops on the far end to make up for the distance.
The course starts at Egweni River Lodge. From the start, run on the grass with the river on your right. Keep on the track through the gate and continue straight. You’ll pass our turnaround marshal and head over 3 little bridges. Stay on the dirt track and keep going until you reach the palisade fence. Head back the way you came until you reach our turnaround marshal and turn back to the fence again, and turn around again at the marshal and head to the fence for a second time. Turn around and go back to Egweni River Lodge. The finish is about 100m before the start.
