This is a 1k to 2k swim taking place in the Lee Fields in Cork. It is a fundraising event for Cork Lions Club and an opppurtunity for swimmers to ease themselves into open water swimming. We won't be timing the swim but no doubt there'll be plenty of you racing each other. All competent swimmers welcome.
Participants will enter the water at the small slipway by the car park and swim upstream for either 500m or 1km before rounding a bouy and returning to the start/finish line. As this is a fun event we won't be timing the swimmers but no doubt plenty of you will see your competitve nature emerge.
There will be a check-in desk alongside the car-park and the swim will begin promptly at 7pm. All swimmers must have exited the water by 8pm. Each swimmer will receive a number at checkin and they must register this number with the marshalls upon entering and exiting the water.
In the event of heavy rainfalls next week it may be neccessary to postpone the swim. In the event the swim is postponed it will be rescheduled for another date later in the summer. Anybody who has paid an entry for the 1st swim will automatically be entered into the rescheduled event. As this is a charity event we will not be in a position to offer refunds in the unlikely event of a postponement.
I look forward to seeing you there.
