All being well, when we return on 24th July there are a few changes to make you aware of which are part of the parkrun COVID-19 framework and are designed for the safety of our runners and volunteers.
We will continue to have ground sheets available for you to put your belongings on whilst you run, so please use these - all items are left at the start/finish area at your own risk.
We will have hand sanitizer for the use of the volunteers only - if you are a runner, please bring your own if required.
The timekeeping and barcode scanning volunteers will use their phones rather than the stopwatches/scanners.
If you are volunteering for these roles,please ensure you have downloaded the VIRTUAL VOLUNTEER APP prior to the day.
Further information can be found here:
The pre-run briefing will be shorter than in the past but will be just as important, and include key information about the course and conditions.
Route Marshals will have our brand new pink High Viz.
At the end of the run, please make your way through the funnel all the way to the end, where you should cup your hands so that the volunteer handing out finish tokens can drop the token into your hands.
The barcode scanners will be standing in their normal position and rather than handing your token over, you'll be asked to hold up your token and our finish token so that these can be scanned, and then you'll be asked to drop the finish token into the buckets provided. Please remember to drop our token, and not take it home.
We'd also appreciate it if some of the runners that expect to finish sub-25 minutes could volunteer to help scan the barcodes of later finishers, as this will minimise the time spent in the scanning area and enable greater social distancing.
We would ask you all to be extra patient and considerate on our return.
It will be so good to be back.
