Denton Dene Parkrun Needs You!

Volunteers are fundamental to the delivery of all events, and carry out roles such as setting up the event, marshaling, timekeeping, scanning, handing out finish tokens or tail walking, to name just a few.

The Event Day Course Check involves checking that the course is safe to use and is free from anything that may make it unsafe to participants and volunteers. The check is to take place on the day of the event as close to the start time as reasonably possible.

The Timekeeper is responsible for recording the finish times of all participants at the event (using the Virtual Volunteer app). Ideally, events should use two timing devices to protect against losing one set of times

The Finish Token volunteer is responsible for handing out position tokens to all participants working in a team with the timekeeper. They may be assisted by a Finish Tokens Support volunteer.

This volunteer scans the personal barcode (using the Virtual Volunteer app), followed by the barcode on the finish position token, to ensure every participant who completes the course receives a result.

The Tail Walker role is a friendly face or faces, who stay right at the back of the field and should be the last to go through the finish funnel, ensuring that everyone is accounted for

We have raised money, agreed a route and got the go ahead: all we need now is a bigger ‘core team’ of volunteers who can help out on a regular basis (8.30 – 10.00 ish on Saturdays, roughly once a month).

We’re a friendly and inclusive bunch, so please consider joining us. If you want to get involved or find out more please get in 07920 579377
