Saturday 14th April saw the members of Rochford Running Club give up their trainers for hi vis jackets as they became volunteer marshals for Hockley Woods Parkrun.
We took over every position except run director, more than 20 RRC members shouted and cheered park runners along the route, gave the new runners briefing, time kept, gave and scan tokens all with big smiles! Runners always make the best marshals and we all know exactly what every runner on the course was feeling!
There was some great feedback from the runners; “great marshals and nice to see so many smiling faces along the course”! If you liked the way we cheered you on at Parkrun takeover on April 14th and want some more great support, then enter Rochford 10k on May 13th!
