PLEASE DON't CLICK GOING OR MAYBE OR NOT UNTIL YOU READ ALL BELOW :)
I have a Paignton parkrun meeting at end of November with Active Devon, Mayor Gordon Oliver, parkrun Ambassador John Wisely and few members from other Torbay clubs.
I'm hoping for a 2k and 5k parkrun.
9am 5k parkrun (for all ages from age 4)
Sunday Junior 2k parkrun 9am (age 4 to 14)
Using the Velopark.
Cost £3000 each
Nothing has been arrange so far so very early days but fingers cross Active Devon can afford 3k for each event and permission can be given to use Velopark. We may need a few meetings before we can parkrun can start,
It could start up maybe April 2016 or earlier fingers cross :)
No one need to be there to help every week and there no pressure for anyone to be a volunteer. Anyone can volunteer as often as they like and do any job from marshaling to time keeping, barcode scanning, giving out finish tokens. We will also need Run Directors too. A run director is just in charge of event on the parkrun day. Its not a difficult job, As parkrun is free we don't worry about mistakes so no one should feel bad if things go wrong but to be honest its unlikely mistakes will happen and normally can be corrected :)
At the meeting I think it will be best if I can tell them I have a number of people interested in being a volunteers and be able to say how many volunteers I have (approximately).
Date I have posted here is not a real date !
Please can you answer the following question
If there is a parkrun at Paignton 9am 5k on a Saturday would you like to be a volunteer.

If there is a parkrun at Paignton 9am 2k for Juniors age 4 to 14 only) on a Sunrday would you like to be a volunteer.

Have you been a volunteer at Parke parkrun or any other parkrun. Also useful for me to say I have a number of members who have helped at other parkruns. Maybe you can describe what it like to be a volunteer and the job you have done :) so others can get an idea what its like :)
Feel free to add any thing else
I will post a possible route for the Paignton parkrun which will be totally flat PB course for both runs :)
