Have you opted in to our volunteer emails . . . ?
Each parkrun at Catterick happens because people step forward beforehand and offer their valuable service. The tasks are easy and our aim is to make everyone welcome, the more the merrier in fact and we never refuse
To help gather the troops we circulate a general request. These are kept to an absolute minimum, and only emailed once every 2 or 3 weeks so that we don’t intrude upon your lives too much. Neither are you expected to answer unless - of course - able to confirm availability on a certain date. Those doing so unleash pure joy in our hearts.
We’d like to specifically remind any who usually participate but have not yet volunteered to consider wearing the hi-viz - just every now and then - and contribute an infrequent hour of your parkrun expertise for the benefit and mutual enjoyment of others.
Many roles can be combined with taking part too. You can help us Set up promptly, or chat to the newbies and Tourists beforehand, or Tail walk. You could sort some Tokens, or help as a Pacer at any speed that suits you, or even throw a few words together and give us your own take for a run Report ? In all things we are there to help, support, and have a slice of cake ready with your name on it !
You can request specifically desired tasks, or we can assign one that you will be happy with and expect a fun, rewarding experience. It’s such a great relief when we know that, as each Saturday approaches, the required team is in place. And what’s more, our hard working regulars might even get the chance to take part themselves !
Afterwards you will receive official thanks, and each experience is tallied and builds your record towards a free T shirt in parkrun aubergine, ordered online via your profile.
So here’s a reminder for you on how to opt-in to our volunteer emails; do consider doing this if you haven’t already; families and children are also great to bring along for atmosphere and please pass this on to friends !
