Vhi to visit Lough Key parkrun for special event

Vhi Special Event at St Anne’s parkrun

Join former Roscommon GAA star Cathal Cregg at Lough Key parkrun!


Our special event at Kilkenny parkrun last weekend was a huge success with more than 200 people taking part. The roadshow continues this Saturday and we are calling on walkers, joggers and runners to join us at Lough Key parkrun on Saturday 16 September.


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.
