So you lovely bunch of Marple parkrunners and friends of Marple parkrunners… Can you help us?

How can YOU help US, you may be asking yourself?

Well, you could really help us out by donating an old phone to us.

This will allow us to time parkrunners and scan parkrun barcodes using the parkrun virtual volunteer app. Utilising this new technology increases the reliability of our results and reduces the amount of equipment that needs to be stored, transported and maintained by event teams.

Please check those drawers and cupboards for forgotten phones that you may have replaced with nice shiny new ones and feel great that you are supporting your local parkrun, so that we can further support all our fantastic participants.

If you can help us, please let us know and we can liaise with you on collection.

Note: There are compatibility requirements for both Apple (iOS) and android phones.
An Apple iPhone or iPod touch must be running iOS 10 or higher (iPhone 5 being the oldest model which will support this) and an android phone must running 4.1 or up. (We can test it by downloading the app and scanning a barcode.)
