This week we found it difficult to fill the volunteer roster, Making last minute appeals on Social Media, Now we are close to 400 runners every week it requires more people to help, We ask that you can do One volunteer stint every 15 runs (3/4 per year)

Anyone who has not signed up to receive the volunteer appeal email can do so in their parkrun profile, You'll find the link in your results email
