Tooting Common parkrun Weekly Report: Event #185 – 7th Sept 2019

parkrun from a personal point of view...

The best bit about parkrun volunteering is the smiles on the runners faces. I like to marshal at it; encouraging at muster points as we say in the events circuit. Track corner is a great spot to be vocal; the spiel varies and the response during and after the run is rewardingly favourable.


I did exactly the same thing at the London Duathlon in Richmond Park the day after.



The other best bit of volunteering is that your colleagues get to run; it's a nice rotation where no one misses out.


I myself am training for a half marathon and a 10 miler; The Athletics Track opposite ideal for sprint work. Not far off 50 parkruns; one can use them as part of a training plan or a stand alone entry to getting fit.

Dogs, kids in pushchairs like it; everyone likes it. A chap who was watching ardently said he would do it for the first time this weekend.

So come and be part of it; sets you up for the Saturday. See you at Track corner.
