A parkrunning family in west London have been recognised in the local community for their volunteering at parkrun.
Nicola, Mark and twin boys James and Matthew, also known as Team Ronaldsons, are regular parkrunners with 950 5k parkruns and 326 junior parkrun events between them!
Stalwart volunteers at Surbiton junior parkrun in west London, Mark has recently taken up the role as Run Director, and Matthew is also very keen to take up the role in the future, volunteering in as many positions on a Sunday morning as humanly possible for a 9-year-old!
