Waterfest 2016 Has Arrived!

It's that time of year again, when you get to dive on into the open water! The event kicks off at 10.30am, Coosan Point, Athlone- Sunday 7th August and we want YOU there!

We have plenty of events to offer on the day: 750m, The Mile, 5km & 10km, which ever may take your fancy! There will be entertainment in the form of exhibition water polo matches for our loyal spectators and indeed food, tea & coffee for all!

Our brave and courageous 10km swimmers will splash off first at 10.30am and soon after, our just as ambitious 5km swimmers will set off at 11am, all of you involved in these races are competing for National titles, in wetsuit and non-wetsuit divisions, in which there will be 1st, 2nd and 3rd place medals as well as an Irish National Cup for our National Champions in male & female non-wetsuit division. Both wetsuit and non-wetsuit swimmers will swim together during all of the swims.

All of our fearless Swim for a Miler’s will then set off at 2pm, after which you will receive a medal and goodie bag to mark your experience of the great outdoors! We here at Swim Ireland are looking forward to a fun day out with some great swimming- and not to mention we will be hoping for some of that sunny weather we have been experiencing!
