The walk will start at the Leitrim Co Council offices and follow the 5.5km route taking in Carrick on Shannon’s beautiful scenery and attractive buildings along the way and finishing again at the Leitrim County Council offices.

Leitrim Sports Partnership in conjunction with the North West Simon Community are also this year organising a 5k walk in Manorhamilton for people and families in North Leitrim on Saturday 16th February 2013 at 12.00pm meeting at the Bee Park, Manorhamilton.

Want to get fit, healthy, look and feel great? Why not get off to the perfect start and join in on this walk and set in motion your own fitness and health programme for 2013. This is the perfect opportunity for all ages, and fitness levels to get involved we would particularly welcome families. The vision of Leitrim Sports Partnership is to get more people in Leitrim to actively engage in sports and recreation and this is a wonderful chance to show RTE’s Operation Transformation programme how active we are in Leitrim. RTE’s cameras may be there on the day as they are making a few surprise visits to the many walks being organised around the country by the Irish Sports Council.
