We do enjoy celebrating our volunteers at parkrun and parents like Bronwyn are particularly welcome for coming along even though running is not really what they enjoy doing, but they come and help out because their children come to run – what wonderful parents and stars! Thank you very much.


Name: Bronwyn James

Age: 37

Home parkrun: Blenheim

Occupation: High school teacher

Number of runs: None! Strictly an observer :)

Number of times volunteered: 13

Favourite volunteer role: Timekeeper

I volunteer at parkrun because: My 8 year old son is running, and I’m there to support him (and be his taxi driver…).

One thing I love about parkrun is: The camaraderie and how encouraging everyone is – it doesn’t matter what your ability or experience is, everyone is welcomed in and their achievements are celebrated with each run.

My most memorable parkrun moment was: That time my son *almost* beat the clock on 25 minutes… it was touch and go as he crossed the line, at 25.01!
