No Barcode No Result No Exceptions #DFYB

Hi  All,

We had an emergency plan review today following the parkrun.  Going forward we ask everyone to please have your personal barcode id with emergency contact (ICE number) on it with you while participating in parkrun.

If yet to register we would appreciate that you do - www.parkrun.ie/register print of your Barcode ID and bring with you weekly. The stats you receive weekly are specific to each participant and excellent to review for your own personal goals and to increment your attendance and reach your parkrun milestones  :)

This will aid us in ensuring we can have contact details for every participant,  in the event of any medical emergency.  SAFETY FIRST

We also will be implementing the NO BARCODE, NO RESULT policy, all in efforts to encourage participants to have their barcode every week.

#DFYB

See you all next week.
