Important: We NEED you!

 Dear runners,


Please do take this request seriously, this is not our usual volunteer request!


We hope you have all had a relaxing holiday period and are ready for a new year of parkrun!


In order to meet parkrun’s aim to provide a free 5km run every Saturday of the year South Manchester parkrun require a SEVERAL additional regular volunteers who can carry out tasks other than marshalling roles to join our core volunteering team.


We are asking the South Manchester parkrun community to step up to this task and help us to maintain this weekly event by offering to take on roles such as runner registration, timing, handing out position tokens, volunteer co-ordination and handling email enquiries etc. We are not asking you to give up all of your spare time, but to take on a little bit more responsibility for YOUR run by committing to volunteering at least once per month.


None of these roles are particularly complicated or daunting and training and support will be provided.


If you would like to help us or require more information please contact us at: (or reply to this email).


Best Regards


Event Director - South Manchester parkrun
