It was a scary morning to get out of bed and come to Rockingham parkrun this morning, with the Halloween Kids in Control Event #25. All volunteer positions (except RD and lead cyclist) were filled by some of our junior crew, with a little bit of adult supervision thrown in for safety.
The dress theme for the morning was Halloween, and the local parkrunners did not disappoint, ghouls, skeletons, devils, witches, zombies, even psychopathic medical professionals, you name it, they were there.
The photo album of the morning can be viewed here.
The kids did a great job being in charge of the 128 parkrunners that turned up, and are most certainly welcome back to volunteer again (hint, hint).
