The fifth edition of the parkrun was held at Mbabane Club yesterday which saw 123 athletics participate.
“Well, it was my first time partaking in the Mbabane Parkrun and I enjoyed myself as it was all fun and the route was well marked. I am happy that I manage to improve my time from last week’s 30 minutes which I set when I was running in another parkrun in South Africa. What motivates me to join short races like this one is that it keeps one fit and healthy while you get also get to make new friends,” Lovely said.
