It was a much damper than usual parkrun that greeted our volunteers and runners last weekend.  Luckily Storm Dennis hadn't yet arrived and the event went ahead smoothly.

Mild weather and ideal conditions greeted 677 walkers, joggers and runners this morning.  The volunteer team was ably led by Adrian and assistant Run Director Aiden, who completed the volunteering part of his Bronze Duke of Edinburgh. It is always a pleasure to see the Duke of Edinburgh youngsters taking their volunteering roles seriously and growing in confidence week by week (and height.. especially for our Silver and Gold participants).

Event #293

A slightly cooler morning greeted our volunteers and runners on Saturday. The Core Team and pre event set up volunteers were busy first thing setting up an extended double funnel, which seemed to work really well.

Double funnel 

How does it work?  When one funnel lane is full the gatekeeper closes the gate and opens the other funnel lane . In order to keep your well earned position, the first person switching lanes gets a number. These are given out in numerical order and the funnel lanes are then emptied in that order.

If you get a number, keep hold of it and as you approach the token team, hold it up high so they can see it, this signals when the 2nd gatekeeper needs to switch the gates.

Other golden rules of the funnel are, stay in the order you finished. This is because you are timed as you cross the finish line and the token you are then given at the end of the funnel corresponds with that time.  If you cross the finish line, stay in the funnel even if you don't have your barcode. If you leave the funnel without taking a token, the time of everyone behind you will be out and it causes issues for the volunteer Results Processor.

If you don't have your barcode, and do cross the finish line, stay in the funnel and just hand your token to the scanners at the end. Remember, no barcode means no result. However, if you make a note of your number, you can still see aproximately what time you registered when the results come out (you will be an unknown runner, we can't change that).

Goodbye and thank you to Lesley Hayes who posted a lovely message on our Facebook page:

My last volunteering role as a Marshall at Park run this morning, due to me flying back to Australia next week. I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for making me feel so welcome and have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of this amazing experience, both here on a Saturday and at junior park run on a Sunday. Needless to say I will be volunteering at parkrun near where I live in Perth. Thanks everyone and here’s too the next time.
