The 2013 SA Running Sock Swap: An Overview

The first annual SA Running Sock Swap, held during December 2013, was a huge success!  Here's a quick overview:

  • Runners from two countries (SA and Namibia) participated in the swap.
  • Runners from five of SA's nine provinces participated: Gauteng, Free State, Mpumalanga, KwaZulu-Natal and the Western Cape.
  • The Western Cape took the lead, with roughly 33% of all participants residing in this province.
  • Female participants outnumbered male participants by 5:1...
  • 92% of all parcels were sent off by the cut-off date of 10 December 2013.
  • 100% of all parcels were sent off by 12 December 2013.

Thanks again to everyone who participated - I hope you had as much fun as I did!  A special thanks to my sock swap partner - my parcel of happiness was waiting for me when I returned home from hospital and definitely brought a huge smile to my face.  I can't wait to start using my goodies!

Here's to an even bigger and better swap in 2014!
