“Every Saturday morning you can join many Capetonians for an early morning 5km walk or run around Rondebosch Common. Most participants (young and old, fit and very unfit!) do this in order to get points for their health insurance, however, it is a great way to get out and begin the day (which is sunny most of the time!) and be motivated together with others!”
