Whether you’re a regular runner, jogger, walker or complete newbie we want to help you stay on track this year with parkrun in partnership with Vhi. That’s why we’re continuing our Vhi Roadshow with the fifth event of 2018 taking place at Oldbridge parkrun on Saturday 24 March.
Vhi Ambassador and Olympian, David Gillick will be on hand to lead the warm-up and take part in the 5k which consists of one lap starting and finishing in front of the stunning Oldbridge House.
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.
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!
Join us at the Oldbridge parkrun at the Battle of the Boyne Visitor Centre this Saturday or one of our future Vhi Special Events over the coming weeks.
