Will get back to Ellon eventually. Wanted to let them get settled first. Course PB for me at Hazlehead. Asthma medication working very well, so chuffed to bits. Finally figuring out what it is like to actually run properly without coughing up a lung! Mad that I didn't realise sooner.

From this Saturday, November 28th, Hazlehead parkrun will be one of 10 trial locations in the UK to have a buddy from the Run Mummy Run (RMR) online community.

A RMR Run Buddy is a volunteer that will provide a friendly face and a warm welcome for women and families at parkrun.

The run buddy for Hazlehead parkrun will be Gillian Van Tebberen who is one of the most regular volunteers at Hazlehead.

The aim of the RMR link with parkrun is to:
- Encourage more women and children to attend parkrun, especially those who have never run before and/or are inactive.
- Encourage more women and children to regularly participate in parkrun.
- To build and contribute to insight into the barriers preventing women from in participating, and developing further solutions to overcome these.

This is a trial and will last until the end of February. Gillian as the RMR buddy will be encouraging new people to come along to Hazlehead parkrun. She will be present from 9am to welcome anyone new or returning from the RMR community.

I hope you will support Gillian and the new attendees that we may see as a result of this tie up with RMR.

That's interesting tebberen, have they done research and found that not so many women do parkrun? I've always found it welcoming and never thought it was male - dominated. Saying that, I'm in favour of anything that encourages folk to run. Well done!
