When did you take part in your first parkrun event at Raphael?
July 2015

What made you come along that very first time? How did you hear about parkrun? Did someone encourage you to come along?

I’d never been before, having been in the area for 7 years and Raphael is my local park. I thought I’d check it out and loved every second of it!

I love parkrun because...

Nothing gets me out of bed on a Saturday morning like parkrun does!

Which is your favourite volunteer role and why?

Has to be the marshals! Without them and everyone of course, the event wouldn’t run as smoothly.

Anything else? Such as who you come along with, favourite Raphael parkrun memory, favourite part of the course, milestone memories, fun facts about you...

Fun fact, I have run 18 World Marathon Majors and am a Six Star Finisher.
