Vhi is continuing with its parkrun roadshow this Saturday 30 September and is calling on walkers, joggers and runners to come join them at the Ballincollig parkrun in Cork. The Vhi parkrun roadshows have been rolling out across the country and turn out at each of the events in Dublin, Kilkenny, Roscommon and Donegal has been fantastic. 


In addition to the normal parkrun in Ballincollig on Saturday, former Cork GAA star Valerie Mulcahy will be on hand to lead the warm up for parkrun participants before completing the 5km course.


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.


Last weekend the Vhi parkrun roadshow rolled into Falcarragh, Co. Donegal.  Vhi was proudly represented by five participants from the local Vhi office in Gweedore. Former Donegal footballer Eamonn McGee and current player and local club man Jason McGee from Cloughaneely GAC were on hand to lead the warm up and joined parkrunners in the Vhi Relaxation Area post event for some much-needed refreshments. A crowd of 152 walkers, joggers and runners participated in the 5K in the beautiful surroundings of Ballyconnel Estate. A big thank you to the team of 17 volunteers who put on a marvellous parkrun and to everyone at Falcarragh parkrun for the warm welcome!


See you on Saturday Ballincollig parkrunners!
