On Saturday 22nd July, Joanna hosted a huge meet-up for the visually impaired athletes and guide runners who regularly attend the weekly group runs with Achilles International. It was incredible to have such a depth of representation for VI running at the original parkrun course (number 940), alongside 1314 fellow runners and walkers. The route was glorious, taking us past rabbits, deer and skylarks!

A super successful morning of running fun, topped off with hot drinks and breakfast at The Pheasantry café. Congratulations all.
