Volunteering
Volunteering is part of parkrun. We would love to see new faces helping out. We still need more volunteers to step forward for our next events so please consider helping us out in order to make West Coast Park parkrun a success. Everyone who volunteers gets a terrific buzz from being part of an instant team working like clockwork to bring a parkrun to life. Volunteering is a great way to meet fellow parkrunners. There are two ways to indicate your intention to volunteer in coming weeks. First, you can approach any of our volunteers with orange bibs at the start/finish area and we will write down your details in our register. Alternatively, you can check out the http://www.parkrun.sg/westcoastpark/futureroster/ on the West Coast Park parkrun website and then send an email to westcoastparkoffice@parkrun.com with the dates you can help out and any preference you have for a volunteering role.

Sharing West Coast Park with Friends
Runners, walkers, dogs, and cyclists all share the marvellous paths at West Coast Park and surrounds. Ensure you stay to the left and be courteous to other users of this beautiful park.

Water
A reminder that there are no water fountains at West Coast Park in close vicinity to the start. Please bring your own water bottle to store at the meeting point which can be refilled at the toilet block or bring some change to use the vending machine there.

Training Tip
Pre run, incorporate some dynamic stretches such as legs swings and walking lunges to loosen your muscles and warm the body. Adding 5-6 100m running strides along the paths at the start will also have you in tip top shape for your 5km parkrun.

PLEASE Bring Your PRINTED Barcode: NO barcode = NO result = NO EXCEPTIONS.
Please bring PRINTED barcodes only as unfortunately barcodes on mobile phones cannot be scanned so will not be accepted. Printed barcodes are used at all our events to record your result.

Five IMPORTANT things to tell potential first timers among your friends:
1. Register and print off a barcode a day or two before your first event. No barcode unfortunately means no time will be recorded.
2. Stick to the left of the path during the event and be mindful of other path users.
3. All parkrunners volunteer. Parkrun relies on volunteers to stage each event.
4. Have fun. You are only competing against yourself. Everyone's a winner at parkrun.
5. ... and don't forget to bring your PRINTED barcode !!

Run Report #27 West Coast Park parkrun

I personally blew a tyre (calf) going round the bend at the far end of the parkrun course, but it gave me an opportunity to witness the best of parkrun as I limped home.  As all the runners streamed past I had the opportunity to cheer them on, high five a few of the more enthusiastic ones, shout encouragement as the leaders headed for home and stop to chat to the volunteers who had given up their time to allow the rest of us to run.

We are short of volunteers this week so if you were thinking of volunteering for the first time or recovering from injury or resting up for a race now's your opportunity.  Drop us a note at westcoastparkoffice@parkrun.com if you want to add your name to the roster.

Unfortunately another 2 finish tokens went walk about this week. If you were in position 59 or 76 and accidently took the token home to introduce them to your family, please let us know so we can arrange their return. The rest of the finish tokens are missing their siblings. We only have one set of finish tokens so they are really missed.

Congratulations to the following runners who set age category records:

  • VW65-69 Sandy PEARCE 30:14
  • VM65-69 Bruce John FLAHERTY 25:54
