Lisa is one of those volunteers that are such an inspiration, Lisa doesn’t run, but simply loves to come along with her family and help out. There are many volunteers just like Lisa – many thanks to you all!
Name: Lisa Caton
Home parkrun: Dunedin
Occupation: Teacher Aide
Number of Runs: No runs, I can’t run to save my life!
Number of times volunteered: 12
Favourite volunteer role: I have two favourite roles, finish tokens and scanner.
I volunteer at parkrun because: My husband and son have enjoyed completing the runs, I went along to support them (as I can’t run!) and thought I may as well be helping out if I’m here.
One thing I love about parkrun is: I love parkrun because it’s a great way to get out and meet new people. The parkrun team are amazing, friendly people who make it easy and enjoyable to be around.It’s really nice being the token scanner as you get to know people’s names and it’s really rewarding to be able to say “Well done, great job.” Every runner/walker puts in an amazing effort.
My most memorable parkrun moment was: Most memorable for me was spending Christmas Day morning with my family, including my son who was home on leave from the Navy. My parents even came along to watch and support them too. A big family outing, with a great parkrun atmosphere.
Such a beautiful course. Another one to add to the list for you parkrun tourists. It’s a beautiful place to visit anyway but make sure to include a Saturday to make it even more worthwhile. Thanks for having us – Chrissy Robertson, Lower Hutt Local Queenstown runner Jack Beaumont was back from his overseas…
