I have loved being (and still being) part of the Puarenga team since before it officially started, trialling different start and finish points, encouraging locals to take part and so on. My uncle (Rob Hammington of Hamilton Lake parkrun) passed on my details to Alison King who originally started Puarenga parkrun, who in turn contacted me. I signed up to be a photographer, but have done multiple volunteering roles! I love all aspects of parkrun and the way it brings our community together. Here I am at the Mud Run! – Nathalie Jeeves-Edwards

I volunteer at parkrun because: I love meeting new people from all walks of life and seeing the determination of everyone there. I’ve also loved seeing the progress different participants have made since our inception.
One thing I love about parkrun is: everyone is so friendly and welcoming
My most memorable parkrun moment was: yet to come… I’m going to have our first Puarenga parkrun baby in November!
