Vhi is launching a brand-new parkrun Rewards Programme. Vhi customers can earn free rewards when they take part in 5k parkruns across Ireland. Customers can claim their first reward after completing just one parkrun and as they accumulate parkruns they will unlock a variety of different rewards. Rewards include sports towels, LED running lights, phone holders and more.


To sign up, participants simply download the Vhi app and scan their parkrun barcode. The Vhi Rewards Programme starts on September 29th and will run for 6 months initially. To help launch the programme participants at this Saturday’s Kilkenny parkrun, where Vhi staff will take over volunteer roles for the morning, can scan their barcode at the vending machine situated at the finish line and be rewarded with a selection of gifts.

The monthly award recognises and rewards inspirational, hardworking and dedicated members of the parkrun community who embody the ethos of parkrun or have made an outstanding contribution – be they participants or volunteers.

Lisa was recognised for her continued parkrun participation and volunteer work with Ardgillan parkrun, Dublin. Lisa’s parkrun story began as a walker, but now she runs the whole 5k, having completed more than 130 parkruns. Lisa has also volunteered more than 40 times and has recently taken up the role of visually impaired guide at Ardgillan parkrun.


If you think someone from your local parkrun deserves to be celebrated as a Vhi parkrun Hero nominate them at here. Winners will be announced monthly and will receive a €250 One4All voucher and plaque courtesy of Vhi.
