No barcode, no result, no exceptions

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

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.

Children at parkrun

We want children to have an overwhelmingly positive experience at parkrun; participating because they want to, in a way they want to; and in a safe environment at all times. In general, at parkrun events, children aged 11 and over are free to participate as individuals in a similar way to adults. They are still children and we are committed to providing the safest possible environment for them to participate in, and we fully accept our duty of care over these individuals. It’s important to note however that the ultimate responsibility for their welfare remains with their parents or guardians.

Walking, jogging, or running

  • At our 5k Saturday events, children under the age of 11 must be within arm's reach of a parent, guardian or designated adult of the parents' choice at all times.
  • At junior parkrun Australia events children can run on their own from the age of 4 until the day before 15th birthday.
  • Under the age of 11 children must be accompanied to the start, and from the finish, of the event.
  • As with adults, children must always participate on foot. The only exception to this is that we do welcome wheelchair users where the course permits. In appropriate circumstances children may, if needed, be carried for short periods, however this must only be at a sensible walking pace and not running.

Can my child accompany me on their bicycle (bike, cycle) or scooter?

  • No, we believe that bicycles or scooters and runners do not mix. The risk of injury to runners and children is too high.

Volunteering

  • Children are a wonderful part of every parkrun community and we encourage them to volunteer.
  • Children under the age of 11 must be within arm's reach of a parent, guardian or designated adult of the parents' choice at all times.
  • Those aged 11 or over can volunteer without their parent or guardian, but should be within close proximity of a responsible adult volunteer. This is providing all parties are comfortable with this arrangement.

Additional Information

  • It is not permitted to run with a pram and a dog at the same time.
  • Running whilst carrying a child of any age (whether in a front or back baby-carrier/harness, in your arms, on your shoulders or piggyback) is not permitted during parkrun events, as it poses a substantial safety risk. Walking whilst carrying a baby or child is permitted as long as their safety and welfare is not compromised.
  • Children may be pushed around our events in a buggy however they should be dressed appropriately, comfortable, and secure at all times. They should also have reached a stage of physical development where they are able to withstand the rigours of course-specific conditions.

No barcode, no result, no exceptions

This week's results include fifteen "Unknown" participants (including our first finisher). 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 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 Warringal Parklands parkrun in the past.

This weekend's community event was brought to you by eleven wonderful volunteers. Thank you to: Kristy ANDERSON, Tracey BANNAN, David BUERCKNER, Silvia BUGAY, Sharon FRASER, Lee HARGREAVES, Pam LONGE, Luke MCDOUGALL, Freya SHAW, Keith STEPHENS and Pauline VANDENBERG.

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.

Are your ICE details up to date?

ICE reminder

Should anything happen to you while at parkrun, or in life in general, having readily accessible "In Case of Emergency" (ICE) contact details can be important. At parkrun, this information can be recorded in our system and the details will automatically print on your barcode.

It's also wise to store the information in your smartphone and iPhones have a function built into the Health App so that Medical ID information can be accessed even when the phone is locked.

If you’ve been parkrunning for a while, you may have registered before we started collecting ICE data. In that case, please re-print your barcode or order a new parkrun Athlete ID Key Tag from Bent Logic.

May your new PBs be short-lived!

Age Category Records

It's pretty special to set a new benchmark for your age category. Today we saw this happen and we want to celebrate it.

  • Brody MCCARTHY set a new SM20-24 record of 00:18:35 (70.13 %)
  • Vicki THOMPSON set a new VW75-79 record of 00:45:22 (53.45 %)

Very well done indeed!

Don't forget your barcode! #dfyb

No barcode, no result, no exceptions

This week's results include eleven "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 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 Warringal Parklands parkrun in the past.

This weekend's community event was brought to you by thirteen wonderful volunteers. Thank you to: Wendy BECKHOUSE, Sharon FRASER, Celine HEPWORTH, Diana KELLY, Natalie LANGFORD, Roger LAY, Ehuli LITABA, Thomas MARTIN, Luke MCDOUGALL, Kaye MORRISSEY, Fiona SMEATON, Sullivan SMEATON and Pauline VANDENBERG.

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.
