A Giant Of A Swim
A GIANT of a Swim is a 1 mile course. Equal to 64 lengths of a typical 25m pool. It might seem daunting… or it might seem easy, but either way, this race is a lot of fun!
Take a leisurely swim and enjoy the stunning scenery or kick into top gear for a winning place. You can swim in a Wetsuit or in traditional swimming togs. Why not make a weekend of it and avail some great local hotels.
Entrants under 17 years will need a guardian present to sign the waiver that the child can swim the distance unassisted and guardians can swim with their child at their discretion but need to enter and pay the registration fee.
However, if the wee-little ones would rather do a swim on their own, they are welcome to do that too! There is also the 350m “wee-Giant of a Swim”. Lots of prizes, awards and fun for everyone!
This event is organised by the CLWF team who are a non-profit organisation. The funds from ‘A GIANT of a Swim’ will go towards the purchase of safety equipment and facilities for sport at and around Camlough Lake and Carlingford Lough. So you are even supporting a good cause!
