On behalf of the Raphael parkrun community, we would like to express huge thanks to David O’Brien, who has been the Event Director for the past two years. Under David’s leadership, Raphael has thrived. The event has grown considerably and is an important and established part of life in the local community, bringing so many people together to walk, run and volunteer each week. David is moving on to another role within parkrun, (which will see him still taking a keen interest in Raphael) and we wish him all the very best as he takes on this new and exciting challenge.
We are pleased to say that we will be taking over the role of Co-Event Directors, with immediate effect and we’re really looking forward to exciting times at Raphael, especially working with the dedicated Core Team and the amazing people who come forward to support the parkrun by volunteering, so that we can put the event on week after week.
If you want to chat about any aspect of parkrun, please do come and see us. Maybe you are thinking that you would like to try out a new role or even have a go at being a Run Director - we would be really happy to talk you through what’s involved.
Thank you to everyone – participants and volunteers - for your continued support. See you for another parkrun on Saturday!
