Operation Transformation Nationwide Walks & Runs 2017


Following the success once again of the National Walk Campaign on January 7th last (where in Cork alone there was over 600 people that took part in the Bishopstown and Doneraile Park Walk)  Operation Transformation have once again teamed up with parkrun to host a national walk/run on February 18th! 

A national 5k event takes place in the Phenoix Park on Saturday 18th of February to conclude the OT series on RTE. Thousands of people will decend on the park for the event which has unfortuantley sold out, but parkrun has over 50 events nationally that people can take part in.

Operation Transformation and parkrun have teamed up once again for 2017 to  host an OT branded event on the same day at each of their locations around the country. 

The idea behind this is twofold:

-First to give alternative options to those who were unsuccessful in getting a place in the Phoenix Park event or for those who don’t live near Dublin to partake in a free OT 5km Event.
-Secondly and most importantly giving the participant a long term sustainable opportunity to participate after the mass participation event has passed.

We are lucky in Cork to have 6 parkruns up and running since 2012 and they have gone from strength to strength, so there is no excuse to get out and get active for FREE in 2017 especially for the national Run Day on February 18th.

The parkrun events in Cork are FREE to take part in and are at the following Locations (just click on your local event) Please note you need to 'pre-register' to take part in your local event!
