Operation Transformation Waterford Walk 2017

RTE's Operation Transformation teamed up once again with Sport Ireland and Local Sports Partnerships to organise the Operation Transformation National Walk 2017.
This year Waterford Sports Partnership was delighted to host the walk along the newly developed Waterford Greenway starting at the Workhouse Kilmacthomas on Saturday 7th January.

With close to 200 participants, with over a quarter of those being children, turned up on a cold foggy morning,  to explore all that this new section of the Greenway has to offer.

Participants were spoiled for choice as they had the option of taking on a 3km and 5km walk as they kick started their own Operation Transformation.
Despite the foggy conditions, participants enjoyed fabulous views of the old railway station and as they crossed the Viaduct, the town of Kilmacthomas.

The Greenway is off road as it has been built on the old Waterford Railway Line from Waterford City to Dungarvan and is predominately flat so it’s fully accessible, safe and enjoyable for all levels and abilities. This scenic route has been well used and enjoyed by locals and visitors alike.

Keep your transformation on track and join us on our “Walk to Run” programmes in Dungarvan, Dunhill and Tramore this January.
