RUN AND BE THANK­FUL

Runner's World (UK) - - Human Race -

I was dis­mayed by a con­ver­sa­tion I heard at my lo­cal Parkrun. Two men were com­plain­ing about the stan­dard of mar­shalling – one was even blam­ing a mar­shal for him hav­ing missed out on a PB. Their sen­ti­ments are so out of keep­ing with the ethos of Parkrun. All mar­shals are vol­un­teers, and with­out their self­less­ness there wouldn’t be this well-or­gan­ised – and free – event to go to ev­ery week. If they vol­un­teered them­selves, they would prob­a­bly find it’s harder than it looks.
