parkrun Hero (1)

The Vhi parkrun Hero award for the month of September has been awarded to Peter Trevaskis from River Valley parkrun, Co. Dublin.


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.


Peter has been recognised for his continued involvement with River Valley parkrun since its launch in July 2016. A regular since its inaugural week, Peter has become the go to person at River Valley parkrun. Peter truly embodies the parkrun ethos, which is exemplified by his connection to his community. He is always going above and beyond to help runners and walkers wherever possible. Similarly, Peter always stays back to ensure that River Valley is left clean and is a champion for mental health awareness, regularly checking in with people to ensure they are happy and healthy.


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