Yzerfontein parkrun is a free 5km event where you run, jog, or walk at your own pace. We are unique in the sense that we are the only parkrun in South Africa that starts with the letter “Y” and only one of three worldwide. We therefore get a lot of visitors, even from foreign countries, who is in search for the “Y” to complete their parkrun alphabet. The parkrun alphabet is an unofficial challenge where parkrunners do parkruns that start with each letter of the alphabet.
Yzerfontein parkrun is not your usual 5km event. Many parkrunners claim that it is the most difficult 5km they have ever done, others rate us in the top three for the most difficult parkruns. However, all enjoy the challenge of conquering the climb to the wind turbines and then the breath-taking views of Table Mountain in the distance, Dassen Island, Yzerfontein, Meeurots and Langebaan Lagoon.
