Volunteers needed for a new Park Run in Dukes Meadows

Two local runners are setting up a Park Run in Dukes Meadows. The 5K runs, open to all levels of ability, now take place every Saturday morning in 587 locations around the country, including the Fulham Palace run in Bishops Park and events in Gunnersbury Park, Richmond Park, Old Deer Park and Bushey Park.

Organisers Felicity and Ben Fowler say their goal in setting up a Dukes Meadows Park Run is to help local people get more exercise and to foster a stronger community spirit. The Dukes Meadows Trust is supporting them. They need a minimum of ten volunteers to set it up.

Park Run events are free and are run by volunteers. If you would be interested in volunteering (e.g. being a marshal, first aider, tail walker, etc) and you are available between 8.30am and 10am a few Saturday mornings a month, contact them at this email address:  admin@dukesmeadowstrust.org

The first meeting for founder volunteers to walk the course will be on Saturday 26 January, starting from the Pavilion art studios at 9.00am.
