Vhi calls on families to come along to Tralee junior parkrun for a special junior parkrun roadshow

Vhi Junior parkrun Vhi Roadshow in St Anne’s Park

Following on from the success of the Vhi roadshow at parkruns across Ireland, Vhi is calling on families to experience junior parkrun as it launches a series of special junior parkrun roadshows to celebrate their partnership with parkrun Ireland.

 

The Vhi Roadshow will be visiting Tralee junior parkrun on Sunday 14 October. The event includes a lively warm up routine which will be great fun for children and adults alike. Crossing the finish line will be a special experience as children will be showered with bubbles and streamers to celebrate their achievement and a gift for each child. Refreshments will also be provided by Vhi at the finish area.

 

Tralee junior parkrun director, Caroline Lynch, is extending a warm welcome to newcomers;

 

“There is an incredible atmosphere at Tralee junior parkrun every weekend and we’re all really looking forward to hosting the Vhi Roadshow on Sunday, October 14th. We are encouraging all families to come down and it doesn’t matter if you have never attended a junior parkrun before. It’s non-competitive and children can run, walk, jog or skip their way around the 2km course. It’s really about being active and making new friends.”

 

junior parkruns are 2km timed runs catering for 4 to 14year olds at all fitness levels. They are free of charge and provide a fun and safe environment for children to enjoy exercise.
