Penallta parkrun #63 17th September 2016

I just wanted to get in touch to share with you the following
opportunities that Run Wales currently have.

We're currently running a recruitment campaign for the following:

1. A volunteer role of RUN CHAMPION is open to anyone over the age of
18yrs of age who would like to support people from their communities to
walk, jog and run their way to a more active lifestyle. Please see
attached the information for the Run Champion Role.

1. Paid member of staff: RUN ACTIVATOR, SOUTH WEST WALES. A full time
position and for further information please see
http://www.welshathletics.org/about-us/work-with-us.aspx [1]

It would be fantastic if you are able to share these two opportunities
with friends, colleagues and other key stakeholders within your networks
so to widen our reach.

We're looking for Champions from across Wales to inspire, encourage and
support people to begin their running journey, and we're very eager to
appoint an Activator who will be able to accelerate the programme in the
South West area of Wales.

If you have any questions on any of the following roles please get in
touch.

Many thanks
