Drumchapel parkrun Volunteer of the Month – December 2018 – Watson Jones

Watson Jones

Drumchapel parkrun – Volunteer of the Month

Name: Watson Jones

Age Group: 78

Occupation: Retired

Number of times you’ve volunteered: 62 (31 at Drumchapel)

How did you first get involved as a volunteer with parkrun: I came to watch a fellow club runner (Watson is a member of Clydesdale Harriers, the oldest open athletics club in Scotland). I enjoyed it so much I was hooked, and I’ve been coming along ever since

Favourite Volunteer Role: Tail Walker (Watson has been the Tail Walker 10 times at Drumchapel. It’s his favourite role because he gets to blether to other participants the whole way around the course!). I have completed 186 parkruns so far, and I hope to reach 200 by doing the Tail Walker role!

What’s your parkrun routine on Saturday mornings: I get up early (as usual for us auld yins!), have a light breakfast, then I go up to the course early

What do you like most about parkrun: The great atmosphere created by the Run Directors, volunteers and runners

How has volunteering at parkrun positively impacted on you: It has impacted greatly on me - I had a serious illness two years ago and as a result I no longer run competitively. But this is next best thing!!

What skills have you developed or put into practice as a volunteer at parkrun: I try to encourage everyone, especially when I’m the Tail Walker. I am a wee bit of a blether to be honest! (Yep, Watson certainly enjoys a good blether! And he’s also renowned for his kind and gentle words of encouragement to participants as they make their way around the course)

What advice would you give to anyone considering volunteering at parkrun for the first time: Come along, volunteer as a Marshal for the first time, then try some of the other roles – you’ll enjoy it!

Most memorable or funniest parkrun moment: Two young boys, about six years of age (with their own wee water bottles), trying to catch up with a deer which had ran out in front of them

Describe Drumchapel parkrun in three words: Challenging, friendly, enjoyable
