Operation Transformation and Sport Ireland are teaming up once more this year to deliver a number of special nationwide sporting events.
Last Saturday, January 9, the people of Longford came out in their droves to kickstart their own journey by walking along the canal Slí na Sláinte route with Longford Sports Partnership.
Weekly walks will take place on Saturdays throughout the county for the next five weeks, with the next one taking place this Saturday, January 16 in Mostrim at 10am, starting from the National School.
The walks will come to an end in late February with the Operation Transformation 5k fun run/walk on Saturday, February 20 in the Mall Complex.
A fun and healthy event for all, the walks are open to everyone – regardless of age or fitness level.
For more information or to register your interest for any of the events, please contact Dympna on 043 3343450 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Also keep updated with the Sports Partnership’s activities by following them on Facebook.
