Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon ambassador Nikki Bradley is encouraging people to join the ‘Bring a Buddy’ Day at the Letterkenny parkrun this Saturday 22nd April at 9.30am.

Women across the county are invited to grab a friend and walk, jog, or run the 5k route in the Letterkenny Town Park. It promises to be a fun-filled Saturday morning and the perfect opportunity to prepare for the Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon race day on Sunday June 4th.

Nikki, an adaptive adventurer from Donegal, is an ambassador for this year’s VHI Women’s Mini Marathon.

Looking ahead to Saturday, Nikki said: “We’re halfway through the 12 week training programme for the Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon, so Vhi’s ‘Bring a Buddy’ day is a brilliant way for women nationwide to experience a 5k in the welcoming atmosphere of their local parkrun, and to bring some friends along too! I’m really looking forward to taking part at Letterkenny parkrun on Saturday morning and hoping to see plenty of women there to walk, jog or run the 5k course with me.”
