Worcester Woods Parkrun Takeover

14th September 2019

Well what a morning that was !
Glorious sunshine was overhead as some of us arrived early to set up the Plum gazebo, a few flags and give final instructions to Marshals.
We had over 80 Plum volunteers (some missed the picture)! who covered nearly all Parkrun roles including a great number of cheering marshals around the course which i later found had contributed to a new Worcester Woods volunteering record with a total of 110 people doing their bit to make the morning one to remember.
Bells, rattles and clapping could be heard from miles away thanks to the great support on course where some runners later describing it as a “race atmosphere”
Pacers were available every minute from 21 – 36 minutes which people took advantage of and bagged PB’s.
I have made a little video of the morning so please click HERE and take a look, you may even spot yourself !

Parkrun is a volunteered ran event and only made possible by those who put themselves out and make it happen for the rest of us week in week out.
If you haven’t done so already, please please put yourself down to volunteer at you local Parkrun and give something back, so many people just turn up each week to run/jog/walk and don’t think about others giving up their time so you are able to enjoy it. It really is lovely being on the other side of the fence so to speak and it helps the event runs smoothly. There is a variety of roles to be filled so contact your local Parkrun and get involved.
