A LOCAL man has been named Vhi parkrun Hero for the month of September.

Peter Trevaskis has been recognised for his continued involvement with River Valley parkrun, which takes place every Saturday morning at 9.30am since its launch in July 2016. 

A regular since its inaugural week, Peter has become the go-to person at River Valley parkrun. Peter truly embodies the parkrun ethos, which is exemplified by his connection to his community. He is always going above and beyond to help runners and walkers wherever possible. Similarly, Peter always stays back to ensure that River Valley is left clean and is a champion for mental health awareness, regularly checking in with people to ensure they are happy and healthy. 

The monthly award recognises and rewards inspirational, hardworking and dedicated members of the parkrun community who embody the ethos of parkrun or have made an outstanding contribution - be they participants or volunteers.

If you think someone from your local parkrun deserves to be celebrated as a Vhi parkrun Hero nominate them using 
the online application 
form. Winners will be announced monthly and will receive a €250 One4All voucher and plaque courtesy of Vhi.

Nominate your Vhi parkrun Hero at www.vhi.ie/running or register for a parkrun near you at www.parkrun.ie. ;
