Summary

Our parkrun requires a pool of volunteers on Saturday mornings between 8.30 and 10am to help stage our 5k run/jog/walk event.

Detailed description



Parkrun brings the local community together every Saturday for a fun, friendly, 5km run/jog/walk and requires a team of volunteers to organise it every week. Tasks involve helping with setup, being a course marshal, scanning finishers’ barcodes, doing the timekeeping, handing out finish tokens, and then helping with packing everything away. Afterwards we go for coffees and breakfasts in Cheddar and a bit of a parkrun social get-together. You don’t need to have any particular interest in running or any experience with these types of roles - they are all very simple and full instruction is given on the day. There is usually a choice of roles available each week. We are affiliated with Winscombe Surgery who are a “parkrun prescribing practice”.


The whole thing takes about 90-120 minutes from setup to take-down but you don’t need to be on your feet all that time. You will be able to chat with other volunteers throughout, and will be sure to meet old and make new friends. You don’t need to volunteer every week but we like to have the roster planned by Thursday so you just need to let us know on a week by week basis if you can help. The only requirement is to pre-register (for free) at the main parkrun UK website, which is a requirement of parkrun HQ for insurance reasons and to ensure you receive your volunteer credits.


Getting there

We meet from 8.30am every Saturday on the playing fields by the Community Pavilion.

About Sharpham Road Playing Fields parkrun

Our parkrun is a free, fun, and friendly weekly 5k community event, put on every Saturday morning by a group of volunteers. Participants can walk, jog, or run, and every week we need a team of people to set out the route signs, scan finisher barcodes, do the timekeeping, marshal the course and help with tidying up afterwards. The time commitment is between 8.30 and 10am on Saturdays and you can volunteer whatever weeks work best for you - just let us know a few days beforehand if you can help. All volunteers must pre-register at parkrun.org.uk/register so your efforts are properly recorded and your volunteer credits earned.
