Termon Operation Transformation 5k run launched

The Termon Operation Transformation 5k Run will be held in Termon on Sunday, March 11th starting at 12.30pm from Craoibhín Community & Enterprise Centre.

The Termon Operation Transformation 5k Run will be held in Termon on Sunday, March 11th starting at 12.30pm from Craoibhín Community & Enterprise Centre.

Details of the event were launched this week. A 70 strong group of people came together in mid-January to begin training for this 5k run and 6k walk. They registered with Termon’s Operation Transformation and have been training two evenings a week since with Craoibhin Gym Instructor Dermot Kelly and Local Volunteer Nicola Doherty. The group had various aims at the start of the programme including some participants wishing to lose weight and others becoming more active. A group of people also wanted to be able to complete a 5k race like the participants on RTE’s Operation Transformation. The Group from Craoibhín got a mention on the RTE programme at the end of January.

The organisers are hoping that the whole community will come out to support the participants and take part in the activities themselves. Refreshments will be served in Craoibhín hall after the race.

Craoibhín would like to thank all the participants who have taken part in Phase 1 of Termons Operation Transformation, Karen McGlinchey from Slim r Us who has kindly weighed the participants on Thursday evenings , Dermot Kelly Fitness Instructor and Nicola Doherty a local volunteer who has kept us all going similar to the army sergeants on the programme!

The race will be accurately timed and a digital clock at the finish will allow you to check your performance. This 5km Fun Run is open to walkers, joggers and runners. To coincide with the run there is also a 6k walk on the same day.

The cost to enter is €5 for adults and U18’s are free, however, you must register at the centre on the day to take part, proceeds of the day will go to Craoibhín Community Centre. It’s hoped to launch a phase 2 of Termon’s Operation Transformation after St Patrick’s weekend. So if you are interested in taking part please contact Mary Mc Grenra, Centre Manager on 074 91 19988- 086 8437407 E: info@craoibhintermon.ie.
