Operation Transformation returns to Galway on Saturday 19 January, with Galway Sports Partnership organising two walks in Galway City and Galway County.
The Galway City walk, in association with Cuman Súil Cois Coiribe and Ocean Fitness, will commence from the Salthill Hotel at 12noon on 19 January, and will include a 4.1k walk along Salthill Promenade.
The walk in County Galway, in association with Moylough Walking Club, will commence at 11am on the same date at the Moylough Church car park and will include a 5k walk along the ‘Golden Mile’ route in Moylough.
Operation Transformation 2011 winner Ronan Scully will lead the walk on Salthill Promenade and walking leaders will be in attendance at both locations.
Last year attendance at these two events increased by 500 per cent on the previous year and Galway Sports Partnership hope to further increase participation at both events this year.
Everybody is welcome to come along on the morning of 19 January. Light refreshments will be available locally afterwards.
Those participating should wear suitable clothing and footwear on the occasion and in the interest of public safety, dogs are not allowed.
