parkrun’s volunteer Lead Ambassador in the South West of England, Geoff Keogh, has been named as the Bristol Post Gold Star Volunteer 2017.

 

The Bristol Post Gold Star Awards are the longest running awards of their kind in the South West, celebrating people who have done extraordinary things.

 

Geoff said: “I was the Event Director, then co-Event Director of Ashton Court parkrun from 2011 to 2017. A parkrun ambassador since 2013, I’m now Lead Ambassador for the South-West of England. As an ambassador I’ve had a direct involvement in the creation of 20 new parkruns across the region. It’s been a real privilege to work with the fantastic team at Ashton Court and all those teams bringing parkrun to more communities across the South-Wes.”
