BOSKRUIN RUNNING GROUP

WEEKDAY MORNING RUNS

WELCOME TO WEEKday morning runs

The Boskruin Running Group is open to any runner that wishes to train with a morning group in the Boskruin and Randparkridge areas. This group is not affiliated under any single club but is administrated by Graham Block and Elrein Bootha. Due to working commitments, runners tend to run in groups that are close to their work or home at the convenience of their morning routine. 

Tuesday to Friday at 05h00 at the Boskruin Village Shopping Center

PLEASE BE VISIBLE – WEAR A BIB AND LIGHTS FRONT & BACK!

The Boskruin Running Group meet Tuesdays to Fridays at 5am come rain winter or shine, there is bound to be someone there.  The group is administrated by Graham Block and Elrein Bootha.  However, they are not responsible for anyone and their attendance is not required for the runs to continue.  There is a different route for every day of the week (except Monday) with distances 6, 8 and 10km.  The runners generally look after each other out of courtsey however everyone is here to train and paces vary greatly. 

The BRG is used by many zoners and information is frequently asked, therefore this page has been created to provide a platform for this information.
