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.

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.

Hello, my name is...

Perhaps you are reading this and you haven’t yet registered for parkrun. It’s really easy! Visit parkrun Australia or check out How do I register? for more information.

When you are registering please be mindful not to:

  • register more than once – once registered, you remain registered for life. You can turn up at any parkrun anywhere in the world without having to re-register
  • register separately when running with a pram
  • register your dog or any other animal – we welcome all animals to parkrun, but they cannot register a time

Date for your diary

Our next anniversary is on 20th February 2021.
