parkrun volunteer with East Brighton parkrun


About this volunteering opportunity

East Brighton parkrun is seeking volunteers to join our enthusiastic and mutually supportive team. Volunteers meet at 8.30am on Saturday mornings, in East Brighton Park, to organise the parkrun for anyone who wants to join in. You can volunteer occasionally or as often as you like. Some people volunteer because they are running enthusiasts themselves, others because it’s a great way to get some fresh air on a Saturday morning, in a beautiful park, with interesting and lovely people, kicking the weekend off to a great start!
There are many volunteer roles. You could be organising the finish funnel, operating the timer, or scanning the runners' barcodes with our simple barcode readers; we try to start people out on a general marshalling job, so they get a feel for how we operate. For descriptions of these roles and others, visit
To volunteer, simply sign up to parkrun at It’s the same registration process for runners and volunteers. Once you have your parkrun barcode, you can use it to volunteer or to participate. Then send us an email to let us when you’re available, quoting your barcode number on all parkrun communications.

Induction, training and support offered with this opportunity

Every parkrun has a Volunteer Coordinator and a Run Director. They will make sure that you know what you need to do in order to fulfil your allocated volunteer role.

Nevertheless, none of our tasks are too stressful, but if you want to do a specific role, please let us know and we'll see what we can do.
