Volunteer at a parkrun Event
Volunteering at parkrun is an opportunity to get outside, make new friends, have fun, learn new skills and to be a valuable part of your local community. The events rely on support from volunteers and they are always looking for people to join the team!
There are so many different roles you could get involved in as a volunteer. You could be organising the finish funnel, operating the timer, or scanning the runners' barcodes using the simple Virtual Volunteer app! You'll usually start out with a general marshalling type job, so you get a feel for how an event works. Find out more about what volunteers get up to by clicking here, or watch the video below.
