Community mission

Volunteer at Norwich parkrun

Support participants to make Norwich parkrun possible



Description

This is a community mission, a community led session where you will meet other GoodGym members at the task. Please make yourself known to anyone in a GoodGym top when you arrive. As with all GoodGym sessions we encourage you to use the power of your legs to get there, i.e. run or walk if you can.

Love parkrun? Give some love back by volunteering!

You will need to email: norwichhelpers@parkrun.com to let them know you are able to volunteer, Hayley is Norwich parkrun's Volunteer Organiser so she can put you on the roster!

Volunteer in November at Norwich parkrun (Eaton Park). Meet at the bandstand at 8:30am with the run director and the other high-viz heroes.

You will have a full briefing of the mornings events and how to best support everyone participating at parkrun.

Tasks are varied and include: marshalling, scanning, giving out & sorting finish tokens, tail - walker and many more. All of the tasks are explained in full, easy to do and the tasks are a fun insight into how parkrun actually runs every Saturday!

The volunteering role usually finishes around 10-10:30am.

Volunteering is awesome for so many reasons. For example if you are injured, getting into running, have a race on the Sunday or just that you want to give back to the parkrun community whilst gaining new experiences in volunteering roles.

You will receive a point on your parkrun profile, if you volunteer 25 times you will gain a free purple 25 volunteer t-shirt!

If you would like to volunteer at Norwich parkrun and in turn receive a Goodgym good deed you will need to email: norwichhelpers@parkrun.com to let them know you are able to volunteer.

There's space to change and leave bags and toilets. We're not planning to do anything purposefully dangerous, but GoodGym takes no responsibility for your safety during group runs, you participate at your own risk. Participants accept full responsibility for items stored at The Forum, and The Forum and GoodGym will not be held liable for any losses or damages

New to GoodGym?

This is a GoodGym group run, where we run to help a local community organisation and then run back.

New runners are welcome to GoodGym group runs - no one gets left behind. You're unlikely to be alone, hundreds of new people sign up every week.

There's a place to leave bags and a toilet at the start point, all you need to do is bring your trainers. It's free to try - get involved!
