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.

 

Kenny Franks, Templemore parkrun event director, is extending a warm welcome to newcomers;

 

“The community at Templemore parkrun prides itself on being welcoming to all, so if you’ve never completed a parkrun before or have just let your parkrun habit slip, I’d encourage you to give it a go this weekend. Vhi will be rewarding participants and volunteers so Saturday is a great opportunity to get active! Just register at parkrun.ie and we’ll see you at Templemore parkrun, Tipperary for what should be a brilliant morning!”

 

Vhi Ambassador and Olympian, David Gillick added;

 

I’m really looking forward to helping and encouraging everyone at Templemore parkrun on Saturday morning. parkrun is a brilliant way to get some exercise, socialise and generally get your weekend off to a great start. I’m a regular parkrunner myself completing the course with my family when I can. In Templemore Park on Saturday morning you’ll see walkers and runners of all ages and abilities so don’t worry if you haven’t run or walked 5km previously. Vhi will have four separate recovery zones at the finish to help you rehydrate, relax, refuel and be rewarded for your participation.”
