Run With Ronan

Ronan Scully

Operation Transformation (Season 4)

Ronan Scully, of RTE’s programme Operation Transformation, is set to embark on his latest challenge by competing in the Mini-Marathon at the 2011 Galway City Marathon at the end of August.

Ronan starred in the fourth season of RTE’s Operation Transformation which is an eight week programme of diet, exercise and positive living aimed at giving everyone a fresh start to the year and positive outlook on life. He applied himself rigorously and lost a total of 26 lbs (11.8kgs) over the eight weeks.

Ronan is extending an invitation to everyone to join him in one of the Galway City Marathon events this year to help raise funds for charity. The race organisers are supporting Ronan's efforts by providing training plans and conducting master classes for the novices.

Ronan is raising funds for Self Help Africa which works at grassroots level in nine African countries, tackling poverty and improving the lives of local communities. They provide practical support to rural communities to allow them produce enough food to feed themselves and trade their way out of poverty.

You can help yourself, and others, by participating in the Zero to 10 programme which provides some useful guidance and information to those wishing to complete a 10km race but may be starting for a low fitness base.
