Community mission

Volunteering at Catton Parkrun

Allow everyone to get their morning 5K


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: to let them know you are able to volunteer.

Meet at Hayman Lodge for a briefing at 8:30am with the run director and the other high-viz heroes. 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, and if you volunteer 25 times you will gain a free purple 25 volunteer t-shirt!

Date and time

08:30 - 10:00 Saturday, 19th of October 2019

As you will make your own way to the task, feel free to walk or run as you wish.

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!
