Over 200 take part in Operation Transformation Dungarvan Walk

RTE's Operation Transformation teamed up once again with the Irish Sports Council and Local Sports Partnerships to organise the Operation Transformation National Walks. This year over 200 people took part in the Dungarvan Operation Transformation Walk led by Waterford Sports Partnership.
The walk took place on the Dungarvan Railway Track starting from the Causeway Tennis Club, Abbeyside last Saturday 17th January.

Participants didn't let the fresh and frosty weather stop them from coming out to show their enthusiasm! The group enjoyed a lively warm-up led by Peter Jones, Sports Development Officer, Waterford Sports Partnership. We were delighted to be joined on the day by a number local Operation Transformation groups including members and leaders from Stradbally Operation Transformation group and Karen’s Operation Transformation
Walkers had the option of a 3km, 5km or 7.5km walk with the majority of participants stepping up to the challenge of the longest route. Along the way, participants were kept motivated by distance markers, motivational signs and our cheerful volunteer stewards from Waterford Comhairle na nÓg, Waterford City and County Council and Coláiste Chathail Naofa. Upon arrival back to the Tennis Club, participants were given high visibility gear to encourage them to stay safe while out walking and information about upcoming events and programmes being run by Waterford Sports Partnership and Go Dungarvan.

Waterford Sports Partnership would like to congratulate all those who took part in the event and would like to thank the Irish Sports Council and Go Dungarvan for supporting the event.  We would also like to thank the Dungarvan Red Cross and all of our volunteers on the day for their help and support.

The Irish Sports Council National Trails Unit has over 650 trails registered to help keep you walking throughout the year. Visit the for further information.
