Come along to the first ever The Great Dublin Swim - an exciting new event for swimmers, organised by volunteers and those with a passion for water, and brought to you with the support of Water Ways Ireland, Dublin City Council and Swim Ireland. The whole family will enjoy this fantastic and original event where you can have the opportunity to dive in open water and enjoy a different day with entertainment for the kids. There will be a whole host of fun things to see and do with street artist and performers and a choice of street foods and open food markets, face painters, music and much more. Choose between two distances - the 1.5k Olympic Distance or 750 meters for a fun swim. Why not get your colleagues involved and sign up for the corporate and business challenge? Swimmers will have the option of undertaking this challenge in support of their chosen charity. The swim is open to all participants over 12 years of age and is also open to wetsuit and non-wetsuit swimmers. All waves will be time chipped, supplied by organisers to try and find the Ireland fastest open water swimmers. Sign up before 25 July.
