Drumchapel parkrun Volunteer of the Month – April 2018 – Anne Boyle

30174672_1830903466930541_523725380_o

Drumchapel parkrun – Volunteer of the Month

Name: Anne Boyle

Age Group: 66

Occupation: Retired

Number of times you’ve volunteered: 53 (All at Drumchapel!)

How did you first get involved as a volunteer with parkrun: My husband has run parkruns for some years now. One morning he ran at Drumchapel parkrun and when he returned he told me they really needed volunteers

Favourite Volunteer Role: Marshal (Anne is our Resident Marshal at Marshal Point 6, and is famous in parkrun circles for her legendary ‘imaginery rope pulling technique’ of encouraging participants up one of our hills!)

What’s your parkrun routine on Saturday mornings: Get myself along to the meeting point for 9.00am, get my instructions for the day, and make my way to (usually) Marshal Point 6. After encouraging everyone round the course I make my way back to the finish line. Then it's down to the cafe for coffee and a chat with everyone else. I usually clock up over 5,000 steps by the time I'm home!

What do you like most about parkrun: As a non-runner, I love having the opportunity of being involved with the run and encouraging those who can make it round the course. I love seeing first timers return and improve on their times

How has volunteering at parkrun positively impacted on you: Well it gets me up and about on a Saturday morning, and out for a good walk - especially on cold wet days when I wouldn't otherwise be out unless I had to be!

What skills have you developed or put into practice as a volunteer at parkrun: I've improved my own fitness levels, and I enjoy encouraging others. I also have a keen eye for possible hazards and let the Run Directors know when I spot anything

What advice would you give to anyone considering volunteering at parkrun for the first time: Do come and try it - especially if you're not a runner or it's a long time since you have run - this could really whet your appetite!!

Most memorable or funniest parkrun moment: Everyone dressed up at the first anniversary. Especially the member dressed up as a pylon! (Yep, our very own Mary Senior took Drumchapel parkrun creativity to a whole new level, and dressed up as... a pylon!)

Describe Drumchapel parkrun in three words: Friendly, scenic and "undulating" (it’s a toughy!!)
