Our HiViz Team

The hero’s of the day our volunteer team. So as you are running, spare a thought to the marshals, the finish people, the scanners, the samplers, the results processors and all who before and after, put out and collect the kit.


This event is totally and utterly dependent on these dedicated people, offering their time and talents to parkrun each week. Our run requires twenty to thirty volunteers per week. IMG_4994

Many of the volunteers are runners who have helped today, so if you are a regular, consider helping once in a while and allow our volunteers to have a run.

Our thanks to thirty (30) volunteers this week in surname order: -

Stuart Anderson, Ian Attwood, Brian Beale, Kathy Beard, Mark Benton, Tracey Benton, Jade Blake, Max Boyes, Tina Burrows, Mary Clothier, Georgina Della Valle, Gwen Froment, Ganesh Gudka, Joshua Harriss, Elias Hayes, Mel Huggins, Toni Mallin, Andrew Mallin, Leah Mallin, Mel Huggins, Sue Nicholls, Karen Oldcorn, Allan Pendleton, Matt Powell, Lisa Pringle, Jeanine Ransom, Michael Reeves, Debbie Ryles, Tracey Thomas, Stephen Walker, Cecelia Young


To all our visitors, we hope you all enjoyed our parkrun and please visit us again. We had runners from far afield including Malaysia, Motherwell, Carlisle and Cheshire to name but a handful.

Burnham and Highbridge parkrun couldn’t happen without the enthusiastic support of our volunteers. Many thanks to the wonderful people who created this week’s event and if you’d like to join the volunteer team, we’d love to have you. Please opt in to receive volunteer emails (via ‘manage my profile’ on any result or newsletter email) and contact burnhamandhighbridgehelpers@parkrun.com to offer help. Please take a look at the available slots on the roster and let us know if and when you can help out, and the role that you fancy doing. If everyone volunteered once in every five runs they do, this would help us to ensure that parkrun is fully staffed each week
