Get active with your family this weekend

Heritage junior parkrun in partnership with Vhi

We are calling on families across Ireland to get active this weekend by visiting their local parkrun. Throughout the month of January, Vhi is running a series of online competitions and this week the focus is on families! Last weekend’s #VhiRewards competition was a big success so whether you’re a family of regular parkrunners or complete newbies we’re asking you to visit your local parkrun and experience the physical and mental health benefits. Push the buggy, bring the dog, volunteer with your dad, jog with your children, everyone is encouraged to get involved.


There is still time to enter the competition as part of the Vhi Rewards Programme. This weekend Vhi have another Apple Watch Series 3 to give away to one lucky winner who will also be awarded with some goodies for their local parkrun. To be in with a chance of winning, simply upload a photo of your family, at a parkrun or junior parkrun this weekend, to social media and don’t forget to include #VhiRewards!


Vhi customers now have the opportunity to earn rewards on Saturday mornings, simply for completing the 5k, as part of the Vhi rewards programme. By taking part in more parkruns, participants have the chance to unlock a variety of rewards, including sports towels, LED running lights, phone holders and more. Signing up is quick and easy, just download the Vhi app and scan your parkrun barcode.


Terms and conditions of the bonus parkrun; this offer applies to one parkrun completed in Ireland between January 1st to 31st 2019 inclusive.
