Volunteer Profile

Margaret and John Palmerston North

Here we have another lovely ‘volunteer couple’ from Palmerston North parkrun which is only 7 events old, but has certainly become part of the community and continues to grow from strength to strength!


Name: Margaret & John Stuart

Age: 75 & 79

Home parkrun: Palmerston North

Occupation: Retired

Number of Runs: Three

Number of times volunteered: Two

Favourite volunteer role: Tail walking


We volunteer at parkrun because we like to encourage people of all ages to keep fit and enjoy the outdoors.

One thing we love about parkrun is to see locals and visitors enjoying the lovely walkway along the Manawatu River.

Our most memorable parkrun moment so far was how cold it was a fortnight ago, but how happy everyone was!
