Celebrate Children’s week at Aveley parkrun

Saturday 24th October is the start of Children's week - an annual event run throughout Australia which celebrates the right of children to enjoy their childhood and encourages them to demonstrate their talents, skills and abilities.


With this in mind, Aveley parkrun would like to encourage all the children that regularly attend our parkrun to run the show! We will open up the volunteer roster to children only that day and would like as many children as possible taking part - we would like at least 2 children per role so that as many children as possible participate and get to have a go at volunteering.


Parents/guardians are encouraged to stay with their children if they wish and the event director will be on hand to assist where needed.


We will need
Run director
Barcode scanner x2
Tail runner


All of the roles as are easy to do (some of your parents manage ok!) there's no pressure, you will be shown what to do, so put your name forward and come and have a go.


So come on Aveley parkrun kids - step up and volunteer and show the adults how easy it is! You can let us know on our Facebook page, at the run on the next 2 Saturdays or by email to aveleyoffice@parkrun.com
