Join Transplant Team Ireland athlete Stephen Byrne at Tralee parkrun


The Vhi parkrun roadshow continues this Saturday, 28 October with Vhi calling on zombies, ghosts, witches and wizards to join them at Tralee parkrun! Vhi have been hosting special events throughout the country to celebrate their partnership with parkrun Ireland. This weekend’s event is extra special as it coincides with Tralee parkrun’s Halloween fancy dress theme.


Stephen Byrne, a member of Transplant Team Ireland and representative at European and World level, will be on hand to lead the warm up and take part in the 5K in the peaceful parkland of Tralee Town Park.


Post event, Vhi is inviting everyone to join them 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 and don’t forget your fancy dress!
