Whether you’re a regular runner, jogger, walker or complete newbie we want to help you stay on track this year with parkrun. That’s why we’re continuing our Vhi Roadshow with the fourth event of 2018 taking place at Marlay Park, Grange Road, Rathfarnham, Co. Dublin this Saturday, 10 February.
Vhi Ambassador, Olympian and Marlay parkrun regular, David Gillick will be on hand to lead the warm up and take part Marlay parkrun which consists of a mixture of tarmac paths and gravel paths.

In 2017, we held eleven Vhi Special Events, visiting Kerry, Galway, Wexford, Kildare, Donegal, Dublin and more and we have plenty more planned for 2018!
