WITH their superhero capes flying out behind them, children enjoyed celebrating the first anniversary of a junior Park Run.

Yesterday morning around 50 children took part in the 2km run at Bransbury Park, in Eastney.

The event celebrated the junior Park Run’s first birthday with a superhero theme.

Denyse King, event director, said it was exciting to be marking the special date.

‘When the kids are running, they have the biggest smiles on their faces which is lovely to see,’ she said.

‘The children love taking part and they like when we do the fancy dress runs. These events are so popular so it was great for us to get to the one-year anniversary.’
