Parkrun per­fect for blind run­ners

Southport Visiter - - Visiter Active -

DUE to be­ing reg­is­tered blind I have never been able to do a proper out­door ‘run’ – I’ve walked but never run!

And thanks to South­port parkrun and their amaz­ing guide run­ners I’ve just done my fifth parkrun and got a new PB each week.

I am ab­so­lutely lov­ing it – it’s a great com­mu­nity, re­ally pos­i­tive and some­thing I never ever thought I would be able to do.

It’s great that peo­ple of all ages and fit­ness are get­ting out on a Satur­day morn­ing to do such a bril­liant thing and the vol­un­teers who put the time and ef­fort in to or­gan­ise this are awe­some. The writer of the Let­ter of the Week wins a box of cakes from Lili­bets of Paris, South­port. To col­lect your prize take in a copy of your let­ter to­gether with photo ID to the shop at 24 Stan­ley Street dur­ing open­ing hours. For times go to www.lili­bet­sof­ Kelly Bar­ton via Face­book
