Activity knows no boundaries here
What do you get when you combine incredible natural beauty, endless roads and a safe environment? An urge to get active, of course!
Prince Albert presents an activity for every level of enthusiasm.
If a gentle stroll on a farm or a friendly set of tennis is your thing, you are in the right place. If you are an adrenaline junky, be our guest – shoot down the Swartberg Pass on your mountain bike or hike into Gamkaskloof.
There are lots of options between the extremes, so get your running shoes, bicycle or hat and explore the endless Karoo.

Prince Albert Parkrun is a free, timed, 5km run that starts every Saturday morning at the Odendaal Sportgronde. April to September we start at 8 am, October to March we start at 7 am. It is part of the growing parkrun phenomenon around the world.
The route includes a bit of tar, some gravel track and about 2 km of trial in the Gordon Koppie. It is a lovely route with fantastic views and it gets you right into the Karoo veld.
We welcome parkrunners from all over South Africa and around the world on a Saturday morning.
Comrades king, Bruce Fordyce and his wife Gill visited Prince Albert during December 2014 to look at a possible route and then returned for the inaugural run on 6 June 2015. Bruce has friends (Di and Jeremy Freemantle) in Prince Albert and old family ties – his great grandfather, Dr Pieter Luttig, was the first locally born doctor and the only person to have a car in those days.
