The 2nd Great Blackwater Swim will be run on the 14th of July 2018. After the success of the event last year we are very much looking forward to running the event again in 2018.
This is a beautiful 3.5km down river swim from Castlehyde House to Fermoy along the Blackwater River, getting out at Fermoy Rowing Club.
Swimmers will need to be competent and have completed a 2km swim within 2 months of race date. Cut off time is 1pm, any swimmers not finished at that time will have to get into the safety boat and will be brought to the finishing point.
Registration is between 8.00am and 9.45am on Saturday the 14th of July at Fermoy Rowing Club. Safety briefing will be on the bus leaving Ashe Quay going to Castlehyde house. Race will start at 11am. This event will be timed.
Refresments (Tea/Coffee/Cake etc) will be provdied after the race.
A contribution from this event will be made to Fermoy Lions Club.
We look forward to hopefully seeing you there.
