The Vhi parkrun roadshow continues this Saturday, 14 October. We are calling on walkers, joggers and runners to join us at Malahide parkrun, as part of a series of special events we are hosting throughout the country to celebrate our partnership with parkrun Ireland.
Vhi ambassador and Olympian David Gillick will be on hand to lead the warm up and take part in the 5k in the lovely surroundings of Malahide Castle. 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.
See you Saturday Malahide parkrunners!
