A look back to Vhi’s visit to Westport parkrun

15 sept

We were delighted to see the return of parkrun last weekend after a long awaited 18 months. We here at Vhi are really looking forward to seeing you all at parkrun again soon, and to remind us of the wonders parkrun can offer, we are taking you back to when we visited Westport parkrun in 2018.


What a morning it was as we were joined by four-time All-Ireland winner Cora Staunton. 113 participants turned on out that Saturday with seven first timers and 19 people achieving their personal bests. There was even a birthday to mark Westport’s then 5th anniversary!


Cora Staunton led the warm-up for participants and offered support and encouragement to newcomers and seasoned parkrunners alike. Vhi were also there to help participants refuel after their morning exercise and providing refreshments in the Vhi Relaxation Area at the finish line. Massage balls were also being given out by a qualified physiotherapist who was on hand to guide participants through a post event stretching routine.


Westport parkrun gave us such a warm welcome and we can’t wait to see you all in person once again soon. You can check out more images from this event here
