In the ever-changing landscape of COVID-19 restrictions, we are asking all parkrunners to check their local conditions before leaving for parkrun this weekend.

If you have visited the Greater Brisbane area recently, please have a COVID test as soon as possible.

 

Jells parkrun to re-open 16 January 2021

Jells parkrun reopens this Saturday!

There will be a few changes in how we operate under our parkrun COVID-19 Framework. This global framework is backed up by more Australia-specific information from parkrun Australia in their regular COVID-19 Updates.

Here’s a summary of what to expect, apart from the joy of being back at Jells, whether you’re walking, running or volunteering.

For contact tracing purposes every Victorian parkrun will display a unique QR code. Jells will have a few copies scattered around the briefing area. A copy is viewable at the end of this news story and will also be available on Jells parkrun's facebook page. You can check in before leaving home, in your car, at parkrun, or after the event. We ask that all volunteers and participants check in on the Saturday of each week they attend Jells. The Department knows that parkrun operates ~8-9am on Saturday so it is ok for you to checkin before or after the event. You do not need to bring a phone to parkrun just to check-in. (You will need your phone if you are volunteering as timekeeper or barcode scanner).

Please note that we will no longer be able to provide a bowl for keys, or a central supervised place for belongings, as we cannot gather under the picnic shelter, and will maintain a social distance as much as possible out in the open. Please reduce what you bring to parkrun as much as possible if you cannot take it with you around the course. However, be sure that one of the few things you do bring is your parkrun barcode!

We will not have our selfie frame available for use until the Covid-19 Framework is lifted.

We'd also ask all participants to review the codes below for runners, walkers and volunteers. The most important part of these codes is that if you are unwell, please stay at home, do not attend parkrun.

If you are new to parkrun, welcome. We are a free, community wellbeing event. We are not a race. We welcome everyone. After a year when we had to stay in our homes and avoid connections we hope that parkrun offers a safe way for our community so start coming together again.

The parking closest to our start/finish area is temporarily unavailable as the drive is closed to vehicles during construction of a new playground at Yabbie Hill. Please arrive in enough time to park in the large carparks on the Waverley Road side of Madeline's Cafe, and walk past the cafe and the constructions fencing around the playground to our start/finish area.

Our first timer briefing will be held at 7:50am near our starting flags. If you are new to parkrun or new to Jells parkrun course, please arrive early enough to attend this briefing.

The safety briefing will be held on the grass between the construction fencing and the bush just to the cafe side of the start of our track. As we won't be able to gather togehter as closely as before, everyone will need to be extra quiet during the briefing so everyone can hear the Run Director shout. To assist with social distancing and to reduce the amount of time people must gather to listen, the briefing will be as short as possible and will no longer include tourist shout-outs and milestone announcements. If you are celebrating a milestone or are a tourist to Jells, please email jells@parkrun.com with your story and a photo and we will share the joy on our facebook page.

Please space yourselves out behind the starting line as much as possible. Self seed yourself into a starting position that’s appropriate for your expected finishing time. Sub 20 sprinters at the front, 30 minute middle, 40 minute back a bit further, wonderful walkers towards the tailwalker, who will cross the start line very last as it's their job.

During the event be respectful and kind to others. Keep to the left unless passing, and take care when doing so. Share the path with other park users and give way to any wildlife.

Our barcode scanners will be set up further away from the finish line than before. This will give people room to queue while maintaining social distance between receiving their finish token and having it scanned. You will need to hold out first your parkrun barcode, then your finish token to the person doing the scanning, then drop your finish token in the bucket that will be placed near them.
Please note that you still require a PRINTED barcode. We are unable to scan your barcode from your phone, smart watch or other device. If you have forgotten your parkrun barcode, please still drop your finish token into one of the barcode scanner's buckets.

Speaking of our wonderful volunteers, we still need quite a few for all our upcoming Saturdays. Please check the Future Roster for what is available and email jells@parkrun.com to let us know how you can help, and when. Going forward, all barcode scanning and timekeeping must be done using the virtual volunteer app on your own fully charged smart phone when you volunteer for those positions. https://volunteer.parkrun.com/principles/virtual-volunteer

Other Info

  • If you are new to parkrun you can register via https://www.parkrun.com.au/register/
  • If you are an existing parkrunner please log into your profile and make sure all your details are up to date/correct (If your local parkrun is Jells could you please update it to match as it helps us distinguish participants in the global system when updating the roster, for volunteer credits, etc.) You can also print off additional parkrun barcodes. Always a good idea to have them in a few locations so you're covered (eg. in your pocket, car, wallet, back of phone cover, etc)!

No runs at Jells parkrun for Christmas 2019 and New Years 2020

We just wanted to let all our parkrunners know that Jells parkrun will not be holding extra parkruns on Christmas Day and New Years Day.

If you are super keen to run on one or both of those, check out the Christmas and New Year Compendium to find an event to visit as a parkrun tourist. Or you can run a freedom run at Jells.
