Swimmers are encouraged to wear a wetsuit but those who are brave enough to wear togs are very welcome!
BOYNE SWIM 2017, JUNE 10th, REGISTRATION NOW OPEN
Drogheda Triathlon Club will host the Boyne Swim 2017 once again with the continued support of our sponsors Louth County Council, Drogheda Port Company & Aura Leisure.
As part of The Irish Maritime Festival (http://www.maritimefestival.ie/), Drogheda Triathlon Club will host the Boyne Swim 2017 on June 10th (start time 12:50 tbc)
The Inaugural Boyne Swim took place in 2014 and was a huge success with 150 swimmers taking up the challenge of completing the 2.7km course. The number of swimmers taking part each year has grown steadily and the Boyne Swim is now a highly anticipated annual event for both open water swimmers and triathletes alike competing for the beautiful perpetual trophies for overall Male, Female & Junior swimmer which were commissioned by Drogheda Port Company and designed by local sculptor Ronan Halpin.
Rising in the Bog of Allen, County Kildare, the historic River Boyne flows 113km northeast to enter the Irish Sea just below Drogheda at Mornington County Meath.
