Don't forget your barcode! #dfyb

No barcode, no result, no exceptions

This week's results include twenty-two "Unknown" participants. This is because they forgot their barcode.

Printed barcodes are used at all parkrun events globally to record your results. Unfortunately, our barcode scanners can't scan mobile phone or smart watch screens . You can collect and print your barcode from parkrun.com. Alternatively, you can order your barcode on a laser engraved silicone wristband from Bent Logic. We are strict with regard to this policy as we process over 100,000 results every weekend and if we were to relax our approach it would increase the amount of work for our volunteers.

If you'd like to learn more about the history of the printed barcode at parkrun and why this policy is in place, take a listen to the special No barcode, no result, no exceptions episode of the excellent Free, Weekly, Timed podcast.

Thanks to this week's volunteers

Every parkrun event relies on volunteers and volunteering is a wonderful way to make friends, feel great and have fun. We're very grateful to everyone who's volunteered at Coburg parkrun in the past.

This weekend's community event was brought to you by eleven wonderful volunteers. Thank you to: Charlotte CLARK, Tracy COLBERT, Olivia DITTMER, Hagen DITTMER, Kathleen DULLAGHAN, Clare FLEMING, Arden FRASER, Anna HICKEY-MOODY, Chris JACKSON, Bethany KOCH and Damien MURRAY.

If you'd like to help, please take a look at the Future Roster page and drop our volunteer co-ordinator an email with the date(s) on which you'd like to volunteer.

Coburg parkrun # 249 – 01/01/2020

Happy New Year everyone!

And what a way to start the New Year! It was a beautiful morning and possibly the best way to kick-off the New Year. For me, it was certainly an amazing experience I will not likely forget in a hurry. With nearly 500 barcodes scanned and twenty volunteers helping out, it was the biggest number of runners Coburg parkrun has ever seen.

Some quick stats illustrate just how big the morning was: 485 people ran, jogged and walked the course; 231 were first timers; 51 recorded new Personal Bests; representatives of 66 different clubs took part; and of course the 20 volunteers who made the event possible.

I would like to personally thank every single person who put their hand up before the day to volunteer and those who jumped in after their run to help out. We expected a large crowd, however, I do not think anyone could have anticipated that size of crowd. It was both incredible and exciting and presented us with a monumental task to ensure each and every person received the right token and result. As such, I want to again thank you for your efforts and for bearing with me on the day, it was no mean feat and your support was integral to the success of the day.

Due to the number of people on the day, the results took a little longer than usual to process and we are still smoothing out some kinks. Thank you to everyone for your patience and if you have any questions about your results, please contact us via email or Facebook.

Once again, happy New Year everyone and thank you for joining as throughout 2019 at Coburg parkrun and celebrating the beginning of a new year with us also. We hope to see you again soon, until then, however, we hope you have fun participating in parkrun around Australia and the World.

Don't forget your barcode! #dfyb

No barcode, no result, no exceptions

This week's results include fifteen "Unknown" participants. This is because they forgot their barcode.

Printed barcodes are used at all parkrun events globally to record your results. Unfortunately, our barcode scanners can't scan mobile phone or smart watch screens . You can collect and print your barcode from parkrun.com. Alternatively, you can order your barcode on a laser engraved silicone wristband from Bent Logic. We are strict with regard to this policy as we process over 100,000 results every weekend and if we were to relax our approach it would increase the amount of work for our volunteers.

If you'd like to learn more about the history of the printed barcode at parkrun and why this policy is in place, take a listen to the special No barcode, no result, no exceptions episode of the excellent Free, Weekly, Timed podcast.

Thanks to this week's volunteers

Every parkrun event relies on volunteers and volunteering is a wonderful way to make friends, feel great and have fun. We're very grateful to everyone who's volunteered at Coburg parkrun in the past.

This weekend's community event was brought to you by ten wonderful volunteers. Thank you to: Rhydian COWLEY, Hagen DITTMER, Fleur DOUY, Kathleen DULLAGHAN, Arden FRASER, Adam JENKINS, Michelle LOADER, Nicky MAXWELL, David NOLAN and Sharon TAYLOR.

If you'd like to help, please take a look at the Future Roster page and drop our volunteer co-ordinator an email with the date(s) on which you'd like to volunteer.

Please visit our FAQ to learn all about volunteering at parkrun.

Safeguarding your property

It is common for parkrunners to leave their personal possesions near the briefing area at our events.

We recommend to those travelling to parkrun by bicycle to chain their bikes up before setting off for the 5km. We also ask that you don't leave valuables near the start / finish area as we cannot guarantee that they'll be supervised during the event. Thank you for your understanding.
