"For the past 13 weeks I’ve been volunteering at parkrun as part of my Bronze Duke of Edinburgh award. I have really enjoyed it, everyone there was very friendly and welcoming. I got to do many different roles, but my favourite was marshalling, its great to cheer the runners on.
This week we had record attendance - our timers only had space for 500 people but we had 542! Helen had to jump in at the last minute to time the last 42. It was very exciting to see so many people come.
I would definitely recommend it to anyone, whether you’ve run before or never heard of parkrun. In fact, I’ve enjoyed it so much I might continue to volunteer after my Duke of Edinburgh award" Dimitri
Thank you Dimitri, it's been great to have you with us!
