If you’re going out for a run on Saturday morning, you might want to check out the Tralee Town Park as the spotlight will be on the members of the Tralee Parkrun as RTE’s ‘Operation Transformation’ show joins up with them for their weekly 5k run.

You can be a part of this event by going to the website and getting a barcode which will log your time. This free event takes place at 9:30am.

4.  Get Creative…

If you’d like to find your creative and artistic side, then this might just be for you. Siamsa Tire are hosting a character design workshop, titled Shapeshifters, which will be run by award winning visual artist, Rory Conway.

The workshop costs €5, is for anyone aged 6+ and will run from 11am to 2pm. If you plan on going, you’ll need to book quickly as places are limited. Call Siamsa on 066-7123055.

5. Kerry vs Limerick

If you’re still feeling energetic towards the end of the weekend and would still like to get out, Kerry will take on Limerick in the ALLIANZ Hurling League Division 1B, at Fitzgerald Stadium, Killarney, with a throw in at 2pm.

After an excellent performance to beat Laois in the first round match, the Kingdom are on a high and will be well up for this game.
