parkrun cannot operate without the assistance of volunteers. We encourage parkrunners to volunteer three times a year, of course more if you'd like! If you're injured and need a rest from running, we would welcome your help. Go onto the Cornwall parkrun webpage and email firstname.lastname@example.org to register your availability and which Saturday you can volunteer.
If you would like to run and volunteer you can do an earlier ‘freedom’ run or even write the run report for our website! Anyone wishing to volunteer their talents as a photographer is most welcome too.
