Volunteer at parkrun across Birmingham

Sat 22 Jan 08:30 am

Be a hi-viz hero

Join in with making parkrun happen and raise the profile of Goodgym among local runners. There are several parkruns across and just outside the city, so look at the links below to choose one close and convenient to you and find out how to volunteer. You will need to send a message to the email address on the page for the parkrun you want to volunteer at, with your parkrun barcode to let them know you are able to volunteer.

I will be usually volunteering at Perry Hall so you can join me there if you wish, or if you have another one closer to home then the address of all individual parkruns can be found on their pages.

All parkruns have a similar structure, with a run director and a volunteer team who will make sure you are prepared for all you need to do to help.

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.

Sign up here to show you are volunteering and I will collate a run report. Let me know by posting any words or pictures into the Whatsapp group or to johnhayes@goodgym.org and I will add them to the report.

Better late than never!

Sat 11 Dec
Report written by Miriam

On Saturday I had arranged a community mission at Dad's Lane. When I arrived everyone was already there and stuck in much to my delight! It was so lovely seeing Steve, Dan and the other Dad's Lane Community Centre volunteers too.

At about 11.30 when everyone was leaving, I was wondering why only after 30 minutes....until Sam let me know I'd actually arranged the mission for 10am!! I was mortified, I'm never usually late and will never live this down. Still my 30 minutes work I'm sure helped...but the real credit is to EVERYONE ELSE.

You only need to look at the pictures to see the amazing work the team did.

Fartleking along!

Tue 23 Nov
Report written by Jonny Carter

Tonight we headed to the canal for a short litter pick as it was rather nippy. We still got one big bag full of rubbish so all was good.

After are litter pick Liam took us back to St Paul's Square via a slightly different route. Tonight's fitness session was a bit of Fartlek, hence the pun! That's Swedish for 'play with speed', basically unstructured interval training.

The aim was 10 minutes, on a circular circuit around the church. Efforts ranged from 10 secs to 1 minute, with mixed recoveries. Laura worked well, always seeming to have to run up the hill on each effort! Amy pushed hard, keeping going all the way through and Rob and Liam pushed each other along, sticking to each other like glue!

After a great team effort the group headed back to the warmth of 1000 Trades.
