King of the Hill and Keash on Garland Hill are a voluntary Committee who work year- round to promote this long-established family fun day which has over the years with the help of our friends at Corran AC have added the King of the Hill run.
This year will see our inaugural 5km event take place. Hosted on the last weekend in July each year it is a treasured and significant occasion in our community. Many a summer trip or holiday home has had to incorporate Garland Sunday in Keash.
We support community groups and clubs in the Keash area by various means be that financial or by volunteering and we are always delighted to welcome new members onto the Committee.
Like many, this year’s event is back after COVID-19 taking place on Saturday 30th July.
