David Gillick and Vhi staff takeover Cabinteely parkrun this weekend!


Proud parkrun presenting partner Vhi is starting 2023 with a bang as Olympian David Gillick will join Vhi staff  at their first volunteer takeover of the year at Cabinteely parkrun this weekend.


With Blue Monday looming on 16 January, Vhi is asking people to experience the mental and physical benefits that parkrun can bring by taking part as a walker, jogger, runner or a volunteer.


Research shows that no matter how you choose to get involved, parkrun can have a beneficial impact on your health. A previous survey found that more than 90% of parkrunners have reported a sense of personal achievement and improvements in physical health.


So, why not begin your parkrun story this weekend? The Cabinteely parkrun event will see Vhi ambassador David Gillick kicking off the morning with some warm-up exercises to get participants ready to complete the 5k course and encourage all parkrunners as they cross the finish line!


We hope to see you at Cabinteely parkrun this Saturday, 14 January to banish the January blues with a morning of fun!
