TOURIST RUNNERS

We are trying something new this week - I have attempted to identify our tourist runners by looking at the first-timers who have more than one run. With that in mind, many thanks to our tourist runners for joining us today:

  • Cathal DALY (Norwich)
  • Fiachra SIDES (Sandgate, Brisbane)
  • Helen MCGRATH (Omagh)
  • Sandra MCLOUGHLIN (Brisbane)

From the briefing, I recall Dublin and London also being mentioned. If we missed any names from the list above, be sure to let us know so we can update.

 


 

WELCOME TO THE CORE TEAM!

Anyone who has attended parkrun in the recent months will have noticed our regular volunteer Bernie Rogers:

Bernie regularly volunteers as our tail runner and takes nots of the cool pictures you see on our Facebook page. She puts a smile on many peoples faces and is one of the most friendly volunteers.

She is a great asset to parkrun, and we are happy to have her join our core volunteer team.

If you are interested in getting more involved in parkrun and joining our core team, pop over for a chat some week after one of the events. We do get to take part in the events as well as volunteering ;)
