RTE’s Operation Transformation continues its association with parkrun into 2017, and the Glengarriff parkrun Ambassador, Eamonn O’Sullivan, who works in association with Operation Transformation, is a friendly face who can offer encouragement and support to members new and old throughout the process.

This year, Operation Transformation are making a big push to involve walkers in parkrun. They will be working from a cardio programme rather
than a 0-5k – the cardio plan can be found on their website and will be updated each week. The objective is to make the final 5k (at the end of week six) an inclusive event for everyone, and not just runners!

So if you are new at the Glengarriff parkrun, please feel free to approach Eamonn,  he will be wearing the red Operation Transformation t-shirt.

You’ll be made feel welcome and won’t be left behind. The main aim is to;

  • Help people out
  • Get everyone over the finish line.

From previous experiences, it is evident that parkrun is an amazing community and Eamonn and everyone is very proud to be involved with it.
