What fellow volunteers say about them: Ruth is a very special little 7 year old who just loves to run. She is regularly seen with Mom at parkrun. Spend a little time marshaling with her and all she will talk about is running and PB’s! She first achieved her club 10, then Club 50. She was then awarded volunteer of the week at Three Silos parkrun and finally joined the Club 25 with her volunteer duties. She is very excited to now join Club 100. She joins many of her family at parkrun, and regularly runs with either Mom or her aunt. Many of her family members also do parkrun, and you will regularly see Ruth with Mom, Aunts, Uncle and Granny. She loves to volunteer, and is willing to do any job.
Ruth ran her 100th parkrun at Three Silos on 29 July!
