During the half term holidays a group of Oakhill runners headed to Blackpool for our own annual ‘Run the Lights’ trip.

This is now a traditional event and a great alternative way of experiencing the Blackpool illuminations.

Running south to north, and the full length of the light show, the route is over 5 miles long and takes in all the sights along the way including the piers and Blackpool Tower.  Our running group kept up a great pace, motivated by the fish and chip supper at the end in Bispham.

Staff, parents and pupils of all ages took part from Year Eleven right down to one of our toddlers (who slept all the way in her pram!).  Well done everyone.
