Umbrella Weather Runners

Sat 21 Aug
Report written by John Hayes

This week we had five goodgymers helping at two parkruns in Birmingham. Liam was giving out tokens and Aslaug was marshaling at Edgbaston Reservoir. Naneesh was out early with Bal setting up the course at Perry Hall while John set up the finish area. Naneesh was then able to take part while James scanned the finishing tokens and John was timekeeping using the app. With the rain deciding to fall just after the start time at 9am, it turned out to be a better day to stand under an umbrella, with a lot of slog and toil for the runners being celebrated by all the volunteers.

Volunteer at parkrun across Birmingham

Sat 21 Aug 08:30 am
Perry Hall Park, Perry Avenue, Perry Barr, Birmingham, B42 1RS
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 the address reflects this, the address of all individual parkruns can be found on their pages.

Volunteer at Woodgate Valley

Volunteer at Perry Hall

Volunteer at Cannon Hill

Volunteer at Edgbaston Reservoir

Volunteer at Sutton Park

Volunteer at Oaklands

Volunteer at Babbs Mill

Volunteer at Sandwell Valley

Volunteer at Kingsbury Water

Volunteer at Walsall

Volunteer at Arrow Valley

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.

Setting up a Super Saturday

Sat 31 Jul
Report written by John Hayes

Today I set up the course with Naneesh and Bal, who will be doing a few more set ups over the next few weeks, so were making sure they knew the positions of the cones and signs. Doing this, we were all able to take part in the 5k, thanks to the other volunteers, including Aslaug, who was doing her first GoodGym task today. It was great to see her although I can't say we met properly as it was mainly very breathy thank you's as I pushed around to get a fast time.

It was great that James also reached out and volunteered at Cannon Hill parkrun, as Perry Hall had managed to fill their volunteer rota. Fiona also volunteered at Brueton parkrun. It was a valuable thing to do as all of the parkruns are having to find more volunteers than ever because of the Covid framework that they are setting up events with for the foreseeable future. On that note, if you are free on any Saturday mornings coming up, find one of the community missions coming up for information about how you can get involved with your local parkrun.
