Preston Park Run
A:
Good morning - Dave Smith speaking.
B:
Hi - could I speak to the organiser of the Preston Park Run?
A:
Yes, that’s me.
B:
Great - um - I was talking to some friends of mine about the run and they suggested I contact you to get some more details.
A:
Sure - what would you like to know?
B:
Well - they said it takes place every Saturday, is that right?
A:
Yes it does.
B:
OK - great!
A:
Do you know where the park is?
B:
Oh yes - I’ve been there before. But it’s quite big and I’m not sure where to go.
A:
Well there’s a circular track that goes right around the park. The run starts at the café, goes past the tennis courts then twice around the lake and finishes back where it started.
B:
Ok and what time is the run?
A:
Well the actual run begins at 9 am but the runners start arriving at about 8:45.
B:
OK - so I need to get up early Saturday morning then. And how long is the run?
A:
Well it used to be three kilometres but most people wanted to do a bit more than that so we lengthened it to five kilometres - we now go round the lake twice and that adds an extra two kilometres.
B:
Right - not sure I’ve run that far so I’d better start doing a bit of training.
A:
That’s a good idea. But it’s not a race, it’s really just for fun and the best thing would be to take it easy the first few times you do it and then see if you can gradually improve your time.
B:
Is the run times then? How do I know how well I;ve done?
A:
When you cross the finish line you’ll be given a bar code and you take this to one of the run volunteers, who will scan it. Then you can get your time online when you go home.
B:
Oh - I see. You collect all the results.
A:
Exactly.
B:
I see - that’s great. So how do I register?
A:
Well there are several ways. I could take your details over the phone but it’s much easier if you do it using the website.
B:
OK - good. Um, I think that;s probably all I need to know for now. Oh yes - does it cost anything to register or do you collect money each week?
A:
Well it doesn’t cost anything to register but we do charge for the run. In fact we have just increased the charge to £1.50. It used to be a pound but because we were making a bit of a loss we have had to increase it by 50p.
B:
OK thanks. I think I have enough information on taking part in the run.
B:
Um - you mentioned volunteers. I have a friend who is interested in helping out. Can you give me some details so I can pass them on to her?
A:
Sure - well you need to ask your friend to contact Pete Maughan. He manages all the volunteers.
B:
OK - I didn’t quite catch his surname - was it Morn - M-O-R-N?
A:
No - just a bit more complicated - it’s M-A-U-G-H-A-N.
B:
Right - thanks. And you could give me his phone number?
A:
Yes - just a moment. It’s here somewhere - let me just find it. Ah I’ve two numbers for him. I think the one that begins 0-1-2-7-3 is an old one so use this one: it’s 0-1-4-double 4-7-3-2-9-double zero.
B:
OK - got that. Can you tell me anything about the volunteering? Like what kind of activities it involves?
A:
Sure - well we need volunteers for basic stuff like setting up the course. We have to do that before all the runners arrive.
B:
OK - so that’s a really early start.
A:
Yes that’s right. But if your friend would prefer to arrive a bit later she can also help with guiding the runners so they don’t go the wrong way.
B:
I see. I believe you do a report on some of the races.
A:
Yes that’s right. In fact we do a weekly report on each race and we always try to illustrate it.
B:
OK - well my friend really likes taking photographs. She’s just bought a new camera.
A:
Actually that would be great. I don’t know whether Pete has anyone to take photographs this week.
B:
Oh, I’ll let her know.
A:
OK good. Could you ask your friend to phone Pete and let him know?
B:
Yes I will.
A:
OK thanks. Goodbye.
B:
Goodbye.
