Father Christmas, Scooby Do, several ballet dancers, a flight of bumble bees and several bananas made their way to Towneley Park in Burnley on Saturday.

They were all there to celebrate Burnley parkrun’s second birthday.

Despite the forecast of heavy rainfall, over 250 runners turned out for the birthday bash with many donning fancy dress for the day.

And most of them completed the 5k circuit before the heavens opened.
