It is with regret that we have to announce that the 2018 edition of Swim Groomsport has been cancelled. This is due to the uncertainty, red tape and costs associated with the recent implementation of The Roads (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act (Northern Ireland) 2010. Although the swim only event is not impacted directly, it is not viable to run as a stand alone event without the triathlon taking place alongside.
As with many other events, this newly implemented legislation has placed increased financial and time burdens on our volunteer organisers. We are one of many to have suffered this year but hopefully we will be back in 2019.
Full refunds will be provided to all those who have already entered. Please note that this may take a couple of weeks as we are reliant on the processes of our online entry provider.
We wish you well in your future swimming endeavours and hopefully we'll be able to welcome you to one of our events in the future.
This swim only event is held in conjunction with the Ireman Triathlon. It's a 1500m race at the mouth of Belfast Lough.
WHEN IS IT?
