Kildare GAA Ladies football captain Aisling Holton to visit Naas parkrun

Vhi Special Event at Poolbeg parkrun

Vhi’s parkrun roadshow moves to Naas Racecourse this Saturday, 11 November and we are calling on walkers, joggers and runners to join us at Naas parkrun. We have been hosting special events throughout the country to celebrate our partnership with parkrun Ireland.


Former Kildare GAA Ladies football captain and 2016 All-Ireland winner, Aisling Holton will be on hand to lead the warm up and take part in the 5k in the surroundings of Naas Racecourse.


Post event, we are inviting everyone to join us at the Vhi Relaxation area for some tea, coffee and fruit. 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’s special event, held at Poolbeg parkrun, was a huge success with an amazing 98 first timers bringing the total number of participants to 186! Vhi ambassador and Olympian David Gillick took a fantastic warm up and was joined by fellow Olympian Mick Clohisey, meaning participants had the opportunity to learn from true experts.


Join Vhi at the Naas parkrun this Saturday for what promises to be another memorable morning!
