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.

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 (23) volunteers this week in surname order: -

Brian Beale, Stephen Bell, Tracey Benton, Katrina Bufton, Mary Clothier, Jeannine Darling, David Darling, Georgina Hainsby, Mary Ham, Colin Holdom, Geraldine Hope, Vincent Reginald Huxtable, David Knight, Vanetta Merrick, Matt Powell, Jeanine Ransom, Michael Reeves, Samantha Smith, Adrian Smith, Tracey Thomas, Paul Tomlinson, Wendy Wilfan, Cecelia Young


To all our visitors, we hope you all enjoyed our parkrun and please visit us again.
