There’s only days to go to this year’s Operations Transformation Walk and it’s shaping up nicely. The walk, organised by Kerry Recreation and Sports Partnership will follow the old tow path of the Tralee Ship Canal, a stunning walk just outside Tralee town, seeped in nature and scenery what more could you want to get your new year off to a great start.

Starting from Tralee Bay Wetlands the walk takes place on Saturday 12th January at 11am to coincide with the official RTÉ start time. Suitable for young and old, fit and unfit, crawlers, walkers, buggies and strollers.

Although the walk itself is almost 8 km, because the walk follows an out and back approach so keeping the little ones in mind, it is possible to turn around whenever you have reached your limit. Just remember to save some energy for the walk back!

Once again Kerry’s Operation Transformation Walk will have the support of Tralee Bay Wetlands, who will be opening the nature reserve free of charge for the day, where the many wonders the wetlands can be viewed.

Also Ballyseedy Café will be offering a fantastic healthy lunch for the very reasonable price of €5. Their food is not to be missed and is very much in keeping with the ethos of Operation Transformation: nourishing, healthy and satisfying.

Come along, get involved, this is the perfect opportunity to shed those holiday cobwebs and to get started on New Year’s resolutions. It’s a chance to face new challenges in the company of many others.

According to Askea Calnan, Community Walking Programme Facilitator with Kerry Recreation & Sports Partnership, the Operation Transformation Walk “Is always good fun, and a great opportunity to meet new people and perhaps try something new.”

This really is a great day and would not be possible without the support of so many organisations who come together to make the day a huge success, namely, Kerry Recreation and Sports Partnership, Kerry County Council, An Garda Síochána, Civil Defence, Ballyseedy Café, the Wetlands Centre and all the other volunteers who make the day possible.
Come along, meet new people and enjoy the day.

Registration opens at 10:30am, please arrive early to give yourself plenty of time to register, and then enjoy a hot cuppa while you wait for the walk to begin.
