Possible Ambleside Parkrun – volunteers needed!

There are plans for possibly two new Parkruns for the Ambleside area.

This is a global network of free 5k runs for all ages and all abilities, held every Saturday morning at 9am.

But nothing will happen without a volunteer team. The Parkrun ambassadors want to meet anyone who would like to be involved. They say, it doesn’t take a lot of your time, and it doesn’t mean YOU never get to run.

“There’s some background admin to do, course setting up, timing and barcode duties, but the more volunteers, the more everyone gets their chance to run as well.”

They are hosting a meeting at the Golden Rule in Ambleside on Wednesday March 20 at 7pm. If you can’t make it, but want to be part of the team, please email sarah.hamilton@parkrun.com. Everyone is welcome: runners, walkers, people who want to be part of a fun and lively community event, youngsters, retired runners.

“We have potentially two routes for the Ambleside area. It’s now up to the community to come forward and volunteer.”

Come on Ambleside, we can do it!
