We can finally announce and say a massive congratulations to one of our Event Directors, Mr Paul DALTON, who has recently been appointed as a parkrun UK Ambassador.

An Ambassador is a person, appointed by parkrun UK, who not only is incredibly passionate about all things parkrun, but who provides on-going support to the organisation of parkrun UK events, is the first point of contact for a selection of local event teams, facilitates networking between events, and improves sharing of best practice.

We are very proud of this appointment and wish Paul the best of luck in this role.

Paul will remain in his role as one of the Event Directors at South Park, but needless to say his ambassadorial duties will be taking him to other parkrun events much more frequently.

Darlington South Park parkrun takes place in the South Park every Saturday at 9am. Other parkruns are available.
