The 3rd Great Blackwater Swim will be run on the 6th of July 2019. After the success of the event over the last 2 years we are very much looking forward to running the event again in 2019.
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 6pm, 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 1:00pm and 2:45pm on Saturday the 6th of July at Fermoy Rowing Club. Safety briefing will be on the bus leaving Ashe Quay going to Castlehyde house. Race will start at 4pm.
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.
