How to volunteer at parkrun
We would be lost with out the many volunteers who keep all our Parkruns running and giving up their free time.
If you can help volunteer at your local Parkrun , please see how too below and become part of a great team of people who make sure our Parkruns takes place and is safe for everyone each Saturday.
parkruns are community events delivered every weekend by volunteers. Anyone and everyone can be a volunteer. You need no prior experience and you can volunteer regularly, or just once in a while.
All the roles are explained to you on the day, it’s super easy, fun and rewarding. Plus you get to feel a part of your local community. Fancy giving it a go? Here’s how.
- Send an email to your local parkrun
The simplest way to sign up to volunteer is to send an email to your local parkrun. You can find your local event here, and you can locate their email address on your event’s home page, under the ‘volunteer’ tab.
Let the team know when you’d like to volunteer (it might be the coming event, or further ahead), and if you have a preference, you can say what role you might like (or not like!) to do. Include your parkrun barcode number too. Then, the volunteer coordinator will be in touch to book you in. Easy.
- Tell the event team when you’re at parkrun
When you’re at parkrun or junior parkrun, just tell the team (someone in a high-vis vest) that you would like to volunteer (again, you may want to volunteer the following week, or another date in the future) and they will help book you in.
- Sign up to receive Volunteer emails
You can choose the events you would like to hear from by signing into your parkrun profile here.
Or you can click the ‘volunteer opt-in’ button when you receive your results email after taking part in a parkrun. This then means that you’ll receive emails in the future from your local event when there are specific roles still available . You can just reply to the email to sign yourself up.
