parkrun cannot happen without a team of volunteers – the volunteer roster can be found on the Rosliston parkrun website along with details of how to volunteer, and all runners are encouraged to volunteer three times throughout the year. There are roles to suit everybody and it is very rewarding – there are also roles such as run report writing, new runners briefing and pre event set up that can be done and you can still run!
The volunteer roster can be found here:

Rosliston parkrun takes place every Saturday at 9am. It is a fun event for all ages and standards. It is free to enter but it is a barcode only event, so all runners need to bring along a barcode to avoid being one of the three runners today coming through on the results page as unknown. Any runners new to parkrun should register beforehand at and print off and bring along the reusable bar code. There is a pre-run briefing for all new runners at around 8:50am each week and new runners will be made to feel most welcome. We also meet in The Hub café afterwards for breakfast and a chin wag!Bring a spare barcode to place on your dashboard for free parking between 8.30 and 10.30.
