Don't forget your barcode! #dfyb


No barcode, no result, no exceptions

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

Printed barcodes are used at all parkrun events globally to record your results. You can collect and print your barcode from parkrun.com. Alternatively, you can order your barcode on a laser engraved silicone wristband or other ID accessories from the parkrun Australia shop. 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 Warringal Parklands parkrun in the past.

This weekend's community event was brought to you by twelve wonderful volunteers. Thank you to: Ken BLADWELL, Meghann BLAKEMAN, Paul BURGESS, Colleen DALTON, Meredith EVERY, Sharon FRASER, Lee HARGREAVES, Luke MCDOUGALL, Elisa MOOREN, Georgina MYBURGH, Steven O'CONNELL and Susana RIVAS VEGA.

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.

Please download the Virtual Volunteer App

The parkrun Virtual Volunteer is our official timing and scanning application and is available free of charge from Apple's App Store and Google Play.

The Virtual Volunteer app replaces timing and scanning hardware at parkrun events and helps maintain our free-to-participate model as we expand. All parkrun events are now required to be ‘app-only’ and we no longer have stand-alone timers or scanners.

To see how easy this app is to use, read the user guide.

Finish Tokens

If, in the excitement of finishing 5km, you have accidentally taken a finish token home, we understand! Can you please return it to us? Thank you.
