Kells is all set to go for the Royal County 5k & 10k event on May 2nd Bank Holiday Monday!

The much-anticipated Royal County event returns to Kells on the May Bank Holiday Monday this year. It’s the 11th year of this hugely popular event. Once again there are two distances for people to enter – 5km & 10km, participants are welcome to walk, run or jog the events. For the competitive runners, prizes will be awarded to top male and female finishers.

We will continue to offer a virtual aspect to the event and invite anyone who wishes to take part in the Royal County but would prefer to do so from the comfort of their locality or the day or time offered doesn`t suit – well then, this virtual option might work for you.  

Registration is currently open for this year`s Royal County – see

You are encouraged to register before 19th April to ensure you receive your t-shirt and event number in the post in time for the event on the Bank Holiday Monday in May. Check out the website and facebook pages for a sneak preview of the tee shirt! The brightly electric shade of yellow chosen for the tee shirt design, ensures you remain highly visible while continuing to exercise out and about in your local area.
