How has parkrun changed your running / fitness? It gave me the confidence I had when I ran at school. As an adult you lose some of that confidence.

Since we’ve immigrated, its continuing to do all the administrative work like emails, facebook and help regarding ordering shirts etc. Still being part of my friends of parkrun, is really a highlight for me.
Favourite volunteer role: Photographer. I enjoy taking photos on the course of the people, riding the golf car and surprising people and taking action shots and just having camaraderie and fun.. especially over school holidays when its crazy busy.
Number of volunteering occasions: 90
Why should others volunteer at parkrun? Because why not? Team work + fun = friends for life!
