To all parkrun volunteers, THANK YOU! parkrun is an international success thanks to you.
As the Event Director of a new parkrun event, I’d like to express my gratitude to the most amazing team of volunteers. They are the most committed and reliable people. They are at the park every Saturday morning, come rain or come shine with smiles and awesome spirits.
Many of our volunteers come from the other side of the city. They have been willing to try different roles so that everyone is very versatile. Thanks to them, I don’t ever worry about not having enough volunteers for the coming event. I really enjoy starting my weekends with them.

Thank you Tracy, Jimena, Karen, Kelly, Marvin and Joon. You guys make my role so much easier. You are the best!
