Congratulations to Helen Carr who has been selected as the week one winner of the Vhi parkrun social media competition. Helen entered the competition by posting a picture of herself completing her (not)parkrun and used #Vhi. Helen has won a pair of wireless Apple AirPods headphones, which will no doubt come in handy for all her future runs!


Helen is an avid runner and a book editor from Dublin. She is currently completing her (not)parkruns in either Malahide or St Anne’s Park. She signed up for parkrun when it began in Ireland in 2012 and has completed an amazing total of 186 parkruns. For Helen, (not)parkrun has been a great way to help keep her connected to parkrun during these difficult months and she often sees other parkrunners also completing their (not)parkruns. She is really looking forward to running with others once parkrun returns, as she has really missed the sensation of running in a group and having others to motivate her to push herself. Helen also can’t wait to have a coffee afterwards with her parkrun friends.


If you want to be in with a chance of winning, there are still two more weeks left of our Vhi (not)parkrun AirPod competition! All you have to do is follow these simple steps.

  1. Take a picture yourself out while you are out completing your (not)parkrun and upload it to either your Facebook, Instagram or Twitter account.
  2. Tag @parkrunie on Instagram or Twitter, and tag @parkruneire if you are posting on Facebook
  3.  Make sure you are following parkrun on the platform you are posting on too.
  4. Use the hashtag #Vhi when posting and make sure your profile is public so we can see your entry!
