Following on from the success that was last week’s first Operation Transformation (OT) walk, which saw locals getting their steps in on three laps of the town park - the equivalent of 5km – Listowel was once again alive with the sound of people pounding the pavements as locals enjoyed the first in a series of new OT walks organised by the team at Kerry Sports & Recreation Partnership (KSRP)

The meeting point this time was not the park but Garvey’s SuperValu in the town who have proudly teamed up with KSRP to help continue to promote an active and healthy lifestyle and hep banish the last of those winter blues.

The walks, which will take place every Saturday morning at 11am for the next four weeks, will follow a different 5km route around the town each week and as evidenced by last Saturday’s great turnout, there is certainly an appetite locally to continue them beyond the four weeks as we head into spring and summer.

For anyone interested in joining next Saturday’s walk, no registration is required, all you have to do is show up and walk.
