parkrun UK is an approved activity provider for DofE and our event teams will be delighted to assess you for either your Physical or Volunteering section. If you want to use parkrun to complete your DofE Award please contact the local event team before commencing your volunteering or physical section.
Volunteering at parkrun will typically take the full hour a week minimum required for assessment. If you are completing your Physical section be prepared to explain to your event team what other physical activity you are completing to make up your hour (cycling/jogging to the event, warming up/cooling down or running during the week are all great ways to compliment your parkruns).
Note that if you want to use parkrun to do both your Volunteering and Physical sections the logged hours must be separate. For example, you could not volunteer as the tail runner and also claim that run for your physical section.
