Thank you to all of our volunteers this week – if you fancy giving it a go it’s great fun and a free hi-vis jacket is yours to wear with whatever clashing jumper you like. We are always on the lookout for new volunteers, so if you think you could help with any of our roles on a Saturday morning, just drop us an e-mail at tringoffice@parkrun.com.

See you next time! Katie
