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. It’s not just the running, but the volunteering too. Organising, delegating and being the ‘general’ in making sure the finish tokens don’t get lost. 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!
Most memorable or funniest parkrun moment: Oh boy where to start… with Eric as our leader and stand up comedian, there is never a dull moment!
