I am pleased to advise that Wallsend Harriers have been permitted by the Rising Sun Parkrun organisers (our very own Mick and Lyndsey Day!) to do a “takeover” of this now well-established weekly event which takes place on our doorstep in the beautiful Rising Sun Country Park!
For this to be a success, we will need our usual members’ co-operation and enthusiasm and I appeal to you all to look at giving up an hour or two of your time from 8.30 on Saturday 5th November to either run, marshall, or just help the core team in organising on the day. Families are also welcome to help out!
Roles which need to be filled are:
1. Pacers for 7, 8, 9 and 10 minute miling for those who are chasing times for the 5K of 21, 24, 27 and 30 minutes. (Anyone faster than 7min miling won’t need pacers!)
2. 16 X Marshalls to guide runners at selected corners around the course.
3. 2 X Timers at finish line
4. 2 X Barcode scanners
5. 2 X Leaflet giver-outers
This event is part of this season’s Winter Grand Prix and all who run or help out will get 50 points towards their overall score when Gary Lewis completes the race results spreadsheet.
All are encouraged to WEAR THEIR CLUB COLOURS to promote the “Green and Gold”!
So please, if you can take part, respond to this post with a comment to advise if you will be able to run or marshall on the day! Or just let us know at the club.
