Newbury Parkrun takeover – 31st August 2019

NAC are taking over the volunteer roles at Newbury Parkrun on Saturday 31st August, to help promote the Highclere 10km & junior races. The race raises money for the club & this years chosen charity MS Society, with the race profits shared between the two, so hopefully this event will increase the number of race entrants.

If anyone can spare a few hours (you don’t have to be a runner), as a minimum we need to fill the following volunteer roles:-

  • 3 x Car park marshal
  • 1 x Pre event set-up
  • 3 x Time keepers
  • 2 x Number checkers
  • 2 x Funnel managers
  • 4 x Barcode scanners
  • 1 x Tail walker
  • 2 x Token sorters
  • 2 x Marshal
  • 1 x Photographer

If we have enough volunteers we can also look at having 5 pace makers and some runners in club colours in the event.
