Calling all walkers, wheelers, crawlers, strollers and wobblers … Operation Transformation is coming to Bray.
The annual Operation Transformation National Walk Day will take place on January 25 in Bray and organisers are looking for people of all ages and abilities to take part.
“This is a great opportunity for locals and visitors alike to stroll around Bray and get some exercise,” says Cathaoirleach of Bray Town Council, Cllr Tracy O’Brien.
“We’re calling on anyone who can get around to take part, whether they are experienced walkers, parents with buggies or wheelchair users.”
The walk will depart from the bandstand on the town’s seafront at 11am and will work its way through the town via the Main Street, down the Putland Road and back to the start point.
The walk is in partnership with Bray Town Council, Bray Chamber of Commerce, Wicklow Local Sports Partnership and the Sports Promotion Unit of the Kildare Wicklow Educational Training Board (KWETB).
“We are delighted with the support from all concerned,” says Mary Doyle, Sports Promotion Officer, Kildare Wicklow ETB.
“This will be a great event and anyone interested in taking part should be rest assured that this is not a long or difficult walk.
“There’s no signing up or registering – just come along at 11am on January 25 and join in.”
This is the fourth year of the annual Operation Transformation National Walk Day and in 2013, more than 12,000 people took part throughout the country.
“This is a great way of promoting walking as a fun way to get and stay active,” says Rory Benville, President of Bray Chamber of Commerce. “I would urge everyone to come along and take part.”
