Park Run Central park Needs Volunteers!

parkrun events take place every week and everyone is welcome to volunteer, we’d love you to join in!

There are plenty of opportunities to try new roles, apply your skills or learn new ones, be with friends and family, meet people and be a part of the parkrun community.

You don’t need any experience of parkrun, junior parkrun or of volunteering. There are a range of roles to choose from, and many of them can be combined with walking or running too.

You can volunteer alone or team up with someone else, and there are always people on hand if you have any questions.

Every time you volunteer gets you one step closer to an official parkrun milestone, which rewards those who have volunteered 10 (for those under 18), 25, 50, 100, 250 or 500 times.


In advance: If you know in advance that you would like to volunteer (either the next weekend or a future date) please email and we will be in touch – we’d love to hear from you! Please include your full name and, if you know it, your parkrun ID found on your barcode.

On the day: If you’re not sure of your weekend plans and don’t want to commit in advance, just turn up and talk to the volunteers when you arrive – we can never have too many volunteers!


Please note this is not a UPSU run activity. Please contact the email address above to volunteer. Volunteers will need to make their own way to the volunteering meeting point.
