Peterborough parkrun #279 – Bushy Blue Takeover

Bushfield Joggers returned for parkrun takeover on Saturday 20th October 2018. As a club we can be identified by our 'Bushy blue' kit and overall cheeriness! 37 amazing club members and other volunteers came out to cheer, clap and encourage the runners around the course, a big thank you to them!
