RYAN Steyn completed his 50th parkrun on Saturday.

He was in a serious vehicle accident a few years ago and was in a coma for some time.

He was told that he will probably never walk again, but against all odds he completed 250km on the Uvongo parkrun route.

Uvongo parkrun is a free weekly five-kilometre run/walk that starts at St Michaels beach and runs along Saints Walk to Uvongo beach and back. It starts at 8am every Saturday.
