Over 12,000 people took part in the national walks in 2013 which are a great way of promoting walking as a fun way to get and stay active.

The Operation Transformation 5k Fun Runs will also take place this year on Saturday the 22nd of February, in Cork and Dublin in conjunction with the Irish Sports Council, Cork Local Sports Partnership, Dublin City Sports Network, and Athletics Association of Ireland.
