Description

This is an evening to thank and recognise the wonderful volunteers in Hertfordshire who make parkrun happen.

The exponential growth of parkrun in Hertfordshire, over the past few years has been remarkable. There are now 14 senior parkruns and 5 junior parkruns which cater for over 3,000 runners, joggers and walkers on a weekly basis – made possible by the selfless efforts of over 800 parkrun volunteers.

With initial seed funding from Public Health Hertfordshire, the Herts Sports and Physical Activity Partnership (HSP), working with our 10 District and Borough Councils and Hertfordshire’s parkrun Ambassadors, has played a key role in that development. We are very proud of having been able to do so, and to celebrate this wonderful initiative, we are staging our 2nd Annual parkrun Volunteer Celebration Event.

This year’s event will focus on the PROVE project – parkrun Running or Volunteering for Everyone – which highlights how the parkrun movement has embraced opportunities for people with disabilities and/or long term conditions, including visual impairment, dementia etc.

People who came to the first event in 2017 said that they were entertained, inspired, informed, and thanked in equal measure.
