We are missing finish token #61. If anyone knows its whereabouts please get in contact with us either by email to gawler@parkrun.com or through the Gawler parkrun Facebook page.

As mentioned this morning, we’ve received a couple of questions about Run Briefs.

We try to keep Run Briefs brief but appreciate you may feel you hear the same thing repeated each week.

There are a few items that parkrun requires us to mention at every event.

These are the safety rules for children under 11, dogs, and location of the defib unit, plus the no printed barcode no time rule.

We feel other items mentioned regularly, such as keep left on course, car parking, finish tokens, volunteers, sponsors and milestones are important to include for different reasons.

Our average attendance has doubled in the past 12 months, which is fantastic.

However this does present a challenge to the Run Director to be heard by a much bigger audience when they present the run brief.

Consequently it is making some excellent volunteers more reluctant to volunteer as Run Director, which in turn means it is the one role we are having difficulty filling some weeks.

So we simply ask everyone to please be respectful by listening while the run brief is being read out.

Thank you and happy parkrunning!
