Vhi Ambassador, David Gillick is calling on walkers, joggers, runners and volunteers to join him at Griffeen parkrun, Lucan, on Saturday, 15 June when Vhi will host a special event to celebrate their partnership with parkrun Ireland.
In addition to the normal parkrun on Saturday morning, Olympian David Gillick will be on hand to lead the warm-up for parkrun participants and offer support and encouragement to newcomers and seasoned parkrunners alike. Afterwards, parkrunners can enjoy Vhi’s hospitality in four separate recovery zones – Rehydrate, Relax, Refuel and Reward.
Vhi will be helping participants rehydrate and refuel with a selection of healthy snacks. A qualified yoga instructor will be on hand to guide participants through a post-event cool down and stretching routine in the ‘Relax’ zone and finally, Vhi will be rewarding participants with a selection of goodies when they scan their barcode in the Vhi vending machine.
