In the run-up to Manchester Pride, Stretford Parkrun is hosting a Pride takeover of its weekly event on 17/8/19. Parkrun will happen as normal but we are aiming to get all the volunteers plus lots of runners from local LGBT sports clubs, to raise visibility and support for the Pride festivities. We’re inviting clubs to participate wearing their club branding and bring pride flags etc on the day.
If you’d like to volunteer you’ll need to register at https://www.parkrun.org.uk/register/ (if you aren’t already registered, no need to sign up specifically for Stretford, if you’ve previously registered with Parkrun at all that’s fine), then email firstname.lastname@example.org so the volunteer co-ordinator can add you to the roster for the week.
If you’d like to run, you should also register (if not already) then print and bring your barcode on the day. It’s possible to run without registering but you will not receive an official result and will be listed as an “unknown runner”.
The run starts at 9am, all volunteers will need to be on site by 0840 and be available until 10am.
