Bressay parkrun volunteer

  • VO70047


Bressay parkrun will take place every Saturday morning at 9.30am (9am ferry over). It is an organised run, jog or walk which is free to participate in. Registration is online and participants print off their personalised barcode which is scanned at the finish line and results are emailed to the participant. Bressay parkrun therefore requires volunteers to undertake the following roles: marshalls, photographer, barcode scanner, volunteer coordinator, run director, time keeper, funnel manager, finish token provider, tail walker, support for new volunteers, data processor. This event promotes the health and wellbeing of our local community by encouraging social fitness. There may also be an opportunity for someone to start a junior parkrun once the Bressay parkrun is well established and successful. The event is ongoing and open to all ages, abilities, genders, races etc. We want to encourage everyone to take part in some way.
