Vhi is encouraging the parkrun community to nominate their Vhi parkrun Hero for the month of July.

 

The award looks to recognise and reward inspirational, hardworking and dedicated members of the parkrun community who embody the ethos of parkrun or have made an outstanding contribution this month – be they walkers, joggers, runners or volunteers. Monthly winners receive a €250 One4All voucher and plaque courtesy of Vhi.

 

With events taking place in every corner of Ireland, there is a small army of volunteers helping to grow the parkrun movement and inspiring others in their local community with their parkrun participation and stories.

 

There has been a brilliant response to the Vhi parkrun Hero award since it began in May, with the last two months’ winners coming from Carlow Town and Erris parkruns.

 

If you think someone from your local parkrun deserves to be celebrated as a Vhi parkrun Hero nominate them using the online application form at www.vhi.ie/running.
