This year Operation Transformation is teaming up once again with the Irish Sports Council to organise a number of special nationwide sporting events. The Operation Transformation National Walk will take place on Saturday January 14, with local events taking place in Mullingar and Roscommon town.
The Mullingar event takes place at Belvedere House and Gardens, Mullingar on January 14 at 11am, while the Roscommon walk takes place at Mote Park, Roscommon at 2pm. Both are 3km events, and walkers of all ages and abilities are welcome.
In all there are 32 walks taking place, with at least one in every county, so there’s no excuse for missing out.
Every walk will have a leader who will set the pace and show you how to get the best value out of your walk. The Operation Transformation leaders and experts will be out in force to walk with you and encourage the whole country to take the first step towards a healthier life.
Walking is one of the best exercises you can do. And it’s free! The walks are all Slí na Sláinte routes which use signage at kilometre intervals on established walking routes to help walkers identify the distance covered. Slí na Sláinte is designed to encourage people to walk more frequently and to enjoy the benefits of a healthier lifestyle.
