Looking forward…

We're sure that, just like us on the core team, many of you have 5th June circled on your calendar (remember having things on your calendar?!), and as the potential return date of parkrun nears, are awaiting with excitement and anticipation that the government's roadmap plays out as expected, and parkrun will be back.


We expect there'll also be some of you out there that are unsure about getting back to events just yet, and that's totally OK too. Just like taking part in a parkrun, everyone should feel completely comfortable to take these things at their own pace.

For those of you that follow our Facebook page, you may have seen our recent 'Core Team profile' posts, which Tom has been busy putting together, to give you guys a little insight into the people that help make Rother Valley parkrun happen week-in, week-out.

As you'll see on those posts, there's a few of us on the team that have been part of the event since the beginning, back in May 2013, and you may have also noticed that Graham has recently handed over his Co-Event Director duties to Martin.

So, firstly, please everyone join us in saying a big warm welcome, and thanks, to Martin for stepping into the role. Martin's enthusiasm for parkrun is going to be a massive benefit to our event and to the core team.

For the time being, Graham & Helen are staying on as part of the team, to help out with Run Directing duties in the short term future when the event returns, and Pete is staying on as Co-Event Director alongside Martin. But after almost 8 years of core-team service, the three original team members feel that the time is right to take a step back and invite some new people to step up and join the RVp Core Team crew!


Could you see yourself being part of the team? Now's a great time to give us a shout :)

Drop us an email rothervalley@parkrun.com or feel free to send us a message via Facebook... we'd love to hear from anyone that's interested.
