VHI recently hosted a special event to celebrate their partnership with parkrun Ireland, in Malahide.  

Olympian David Gillick was on hand to lead the warm up for participants before completing the 5km course alongside newcomers and seasoned parkrunners alike. 

Vhi provided walkers, joggers, runners and volunteers at Malahide parkrun with a variety of refreshments at the finish line. 

A qualified physiotherapist was also available to guide participants through a post-event stretching routine to ease aching muscles.

Parkruns take place over a 5km course weekly, are free to enter and are open to all ages and abilities, providing a fun and safe environment to enjoy exercise. To register for a parkrun near you, visit www.parkrun.ie. ;

St Anne’s Park, Fairview Park, Poppintree Park, Darndale Park and Father Collins Park are among the local venues for the parkruns.
