Join Cork GAA star Rena Buckley at Castle Demense parkrun this weekend (1)

Cork GAA star and 18-time All-Ireland Winner, Rena Buckley is calling on walkers, joggers and runners to join her at the Castle Demense parkrun on Saturday 19 May in Macroom, Co Cork when Vhi will host a special event to celebrate their partnership with parkrun Ireland and Castle Demense parkrun’s 5th birthday.


In addition to the normal Castle Demense parkrun, Rena Buckley will be on hand to lead the warm-up for parkrun participants and offer support and encouragement to newcomers and seasoned parkrunners alike. Vhi will be helping participants refuel after their morning exercise and providing refreshments in the Vhi Relaxation Area at the finish line. Free massage balls will be given out on a first come first served basis and Buckley, a qualified physiotherapist, will be on hand to guide participants through a post event stretching routine.


Join us at Castle Demense parkrun in Maghereen, Macroom, Co Cork this Saturday or one of our future Vhi Special Events over the coming months. And, if you fancy taking on double the parkrun distance, sign up for the 2018 Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon before Friday 18 May. Over 35,000 women are expected to walk, jog and run the 10KM route starting in Fitzwilliam Square, Dublin and finishing on Baggot Street on Bank Holiday Sunday 3 June. Register at
