Vhi set to host special events at junior parkrun in Lucan

More Than Running in partnership with Vhi Launch

Olympian and Vhi ambassador David Gillick will be joining junior parkrunners and volunteers at various junior parkruns in Lucan this autumn! This Sunday, he will be at Griffeen junior parkrun in Lucan from 9am for a special event hosted by Vhi. Vhi are proud presenting partners of parkrun and are hoping to see many of you there this coming Sunday and at the remaining upcoming events. At these special events, David will make sure all junior parkrunners are ready for their 2km, by leading them in a fun warm – up. After the route, there will be a Lucky Dip full of branded goodies and other fun activities happening like a selfie insta frame!

Brighid Smyth, Head of Corporate Communications in Vhi said: parkrun has been growing at an incredible rate and Vhi is delighted to support its growth and development particularly when it comes to junior parkrun. junior parkruns are open to all children aged between 4 – 14  and everyone is welcome, from those who volunteer, to those younger who are looking to take up a fun and welcoming initiative by either walking, jogging or running. Here at Vhi we love that there is a place for everyone at both parkrun and junior parkrun. Vhi is committed to helping our customers and communities live longer, stronger, healthier lives and our partnership with parkrun helps us deliver this. We’re delighted to have our fantastic long standing Vhi ambassador join us at junior parkrun events this autumn.’

Vhi Ambassador and Olympian, David Gillick added;  “I’m really looking forward to helping and encouraging all the junior parkrunners at the upcoming events. junior parkrun is a brilliant way for young people to get some exercise, socialise and meet other people. Hopefully I will see you there this Sunday at Griffeen junior parkrun!’ junior parkruns are 2km long and cater for 4 to 14-year olds, free of charge providing a fun and safe environment for children to enjoy exercise.
