In addition to the normal parkrun in Lough Key on Saturday morning, former Roscommon GAA star Cathal Cregg will be on hand to lead the warm up for parkrun participants before completing the 5km course alongside newcomers and seasoned parkrunners alike.


To help participants refuel after their morning exercise, wewill be providing refreshments in the Vhi Relaxation Area at the finish line. Massage balls will be given out while stocks last and a qualified physiotherapist will also be on hand to guide participants through a post event stretching routine.
