Most memorable or funniest parkrun moment: When the timekeepers and I offer ecstatic finishers who are either first timers or have set a PB “Free entry for next week.”

 

What fellow volunteers say about them:  “Danny has been a stalwart and very reliable volunteer. He has given his time freely even though he only recently started enjoying the pleasure of completing a parkrun himself. He is always quick with a witty comment or come back.

 

Breakfast in Danny’s company is very light hearted and his most recent chirp even has the waitresses entertained. When asked how he would like his eggs done…the answer is “nicely”.

 

The improvement in Danny’s walking has been a journey we have been fortunate to see, it may have taken a few years but 15 PB’s in his first 28 parkruns is just awesome!” – Annamarie Acton, Event Director, Three Silos parkrun
