Johannesburg, Thursday 1st February 2018

"After five-and-a-half years of partnership between Blue Label Telecoms and parkrun in South Africa, we confirm that this association has come to an end.  parkrun is grateful to Blue Label for its support all the way from parkrun being a single 5k run in Delta Park, with just 26 runners & 4 volunteers, to becoming Africa's largest running series, operating in over 100 locations and having more than 500,000 registered runners.  Both parties are proud that since parkrun's inaugural event in November 2011 it has achieved so many things it never dreamt possible and that Blue Label Telecoms has been able to be a huge part of that success."
