Little catch up from Event number 80 25th August.
Saturday 25th saw Blackpool transport staff graduating from their “COACH” to 5km having followed a fitness programme for a number of weeks. They brought their supporters and donned their yellow t-shirts which could not out shine their beaming smiles. What an enormous sense of team work they had with the already finished participants encouraging every single team mate over the line. Congratulations to all participants thank you for choosing Blackpool parkrun for your ‘graduation’.
