I have emailed Parkrun about this now and got sent a list of "things to read if you are thinking of setting up a Parkrun". I would really like to make contact with others who are interested, I mentioned this to Parkrun but they just sent the standard info. From my experience with Beavers if I step up to the line I will let it take over my life and I don't want it to take over my life. I am quite happy to go most weeks, and quite happy to volunteer more often than running and put some time into setting up a route etc, and even have a teenage son who has started volunteering as part of his Duke of Edinburgh, but I want to do it as part of a team and I don't know anyone.
Ha ha, apart from encountering at least four other people running round the village this morning, maybe I should ask them, but they might not be very happy having their morning run disturbed!
The Telford run director, bless him, quite put me off saying what a huge commitment it was at first but now he had a team he could take a week off now and again if he really wanted to!
