You can catch up on all the Vhi parktalks episodes now!


Over the past number of weeks, we wanted to keep the community spirit that is unique to parkrun alive through #Vhiparktalks, an 8-part Instagram live series hosted by Vhi ambassador David Gillick.


Each episode covered a various range of topics and was an opportunity for parkrunners to have their questions answered. David was joined by guests who are experts in their fields and provided tips and advice that you can now watch back.


Topics ranged from stretching, to running shoes, mental health, sleep and a guest appearance from Sonia O’Sullivan!
