All-Star Valerie to lead warm-up ahead of Ballincollig park run

Vhi is calling on walkers, joggers and runners to join them at Ballincollig parkrun this Saturday, September 30, when Vhi will host a special event to celebrate their partnership with parkrun Ireland.

In addition to the normal parkrun in Ballincollig on September 30, Cork GAA star Valerie Mulcahy will be on hand to lead the warm up for parkrun participants before completing the 5km course alongside newcomers and seasoned parkrunners alike.

Vhi will be helping participants refuel after their morning exercise and providing refreshments in the Relaxation Area at the finish line.

Free massage balls will be given out on a first come first served basis and a qualified physiotherapist will also be on hand to guide participants through a post event stretching routine.

Ballincollig parkrun event director, Suzanne Quirke, said; "Ballincollig parkrun prides itself on being welcoming to all, so if you've never completed a parkrun before or have let your parkrun habit slip, I'd encourage you to give it a go this weekend.

"Just register at parkrun.ie and we'll see you at 9.30am in The Regional Park Ballincollig for what should be a brilliant morning."
