Junior parkrun - Volunteers wanted

The Junior parkrun on the Meadows will be a weekly 2km timed run for kids aged 4-14, and it will be held every Sunday at 9.30am - more general details on parkrun are at http://www.parkrun.org.uk/

Funding has just been secured, and that is starting a chain of events that includes setting up a website, recruiting volunteers and sourcing all the kit to hold it. After that they will need training to host the events, and they will do a trial before they formally start. Alongside this there is a set of other training and checks around child safeguarding.

Whilst they don't have a formal start date yet they are looking for volunteers who would be interested in helping to run the events, so if you would be interested to help out parkrun would be delighted to hear from you. The commitment would be from about 9am to 10.30am on Sunday morning, which gives time to setup the event and then compile results afterwards.

If you are interested, please contact Peter Smith (stix252@yahoo.co.uk) who is the main contact for setting up this event.
