Royal Greenway Run Killyon returns on Wednesday 29th May 2019 at 7.30pm. 
The route is along the beautiful Royal Canal Greenway in Co. Meath. This flat, even surface along the banks of the Royal Canal will give you every opportunity to run for your PB, enjoy a group jog/run/walk with your friends or family and take in all the scenery this stretch of the Royal Canal has to offer.

The race headquarters for the race is at Moran’s Pub on the Royal Canal at Hill-of-Down, Clonard, Co. Meath. Our race is easily accessible – we are only 4 miles from Kinnegad, 10 miles from Trim and Enfield, 12 miles from Edenderry, and 15 miles from Mullingar. Moran’s Pub and the Hill-of-Down is on the Regional Road R161 between Kinnegad and Trim. Check out the Google StreetView view of the Hill-of-Down or just the standard Google Maps view of the area.

 

Our two races are both out and back courses. They are completely traffic free.  The 5KM goes from Hill of Down bridge to Blackshade Bridge and back to Moran’s Pub at the Hill. The 10KM goes from the Hill of Down bridge to the Longwood Dock area and then back to Moran’s Pub at the Hill. There are only TWO ‘hills’ in the entire route – these are just the small inclines at each of the two bridges you will encounter. There will be waterstops along the way. We’ll have helpful marshal’s along the way to guide and encourage you.  The 10KM race crosses the Clonard-Longwood road at Blackshade. However we’ll have a traffic management plan in places with marshalls to ensure all runners, joggers and walkers are able to cross this road crossing without stopping.
