I volunteer at parkrun because: I’m working towards a goal of getting a Volunteer 25 t-shirt. I like getting there early and talking to all the people too.

One thing I love about parkrun is: The people we see who we don’t normally see there – you can have a chat and meet new people from other places. And my family does it every week and I like beating my dad.

My most memorable parkrun moment was: Running a parkrun in jandals, football socks and shin pads. I was just going to watch my family run before my football game, but I got carried away and ended up running the whole thing!
