I volunteer at parkrun because:  I want to do my bit to keep parkrun alive, if we didn’t all volunteer now and again then parkrun wouldn’t be possible.


One thing I love about parkrun is: I love being at the finish line, such a great atmosphere and so awesome to see fellow parkrunners’ smiling faces and cheer them on as they cross the finish line


 My most memorable parkrun moment was: was probabaly crossing the finish line in my first parkrun, all the enouragment and cheering, had me hooked!!
