All change at the finish

In line with our COVID framework, one of the changes that will happen from this weekend is that all timing and barcode scanning will be done using the virtual volunteer app.

There are advantages to this - the stopwatches were temperamental. Cast your mind back to 14 January 2017 - everyone had a time of 59:59 recorded that day because both stopwatches failed half-way through the run!

The barcode scanners were OK, but was that beep my scanner or did it come from the person standing next to me? The app will not allow the runner ID and finish token to be scanned in the wrong order, which will reduce the amount of issues when results processing. Feedback from other events suggests that the app can read barcodes that the Opticon scanners couldn't. More importantly, when using the app, you could see the scan was successful.

Finally, a bonus for the team, the app will send information direct to the parkrun results system so no more attaching wires to a laptop in the café for us!

If you are down to volunteer to do timekeeping or barcode scanning, please make sure you've downloaded the app in advance:

For iOS devices: parkrun.me/2rqcf
For Android devices: parkrun.me/3ua02

If you're running, why not download it anyway - if we've got queues, you may be able to help us out after your parkrun and get a volunteer credit as well as your time! Either way, please ensure your device is fully charged before leaving home and don't disappear when you're ready to go without seeing the run director first.

Please remember, we cannot accept barcodes provided on a mobile phone and we are a barcode only event so no barcode, no time.

Danny Norman from the "With Me Now" podcast has done a YouTube video explaining how the app works, which can be found at https://youtu.be/OwnTrEAoWdw if you're interested.

 

Temporary Course Change

Despite the recent government changes, we are reopening under parkrun's COVID framework (which can be found at https://volunteer.parkrun.com/principles/open-with-covid-19-management-system).

To provide additional space for social distancing at both the start and the finish there are a couple of tweaks that have been made to the course, which are below. We will keep the effectiveness of these changes under review and the current plan is to revert back to the previous course when the framework no longer needs to be followed.
