Join former Donegal GAA star Eamon McGee at Falcarragh parkrun


Vhi’s special event at Lough Key parkrun in Roscommon last weekend was a huge success with 198 people taking part. The roadshow continues this weekend with Vhi calling on walkers, joggers and runners to join them at Falcarragh parkrun in Donegal this Saturday, 23 September.


Vhi have been hosting special events to celebrate their partnership with parkrun Ireland. In addition to the normal parkrun in Falcarragh on Saturday morning, former Donegal GAA star Eamon McGee will be on hand to lead the warm up for parkrun participants before completing the 5k course alongside newcomers and seasoned parkrunners alike.


To help participants refuel after their morning exercise, Vhi will 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.
