Red Bull Neptune Steps is back, and entries are officially OPEN as at 10am on Tuesday 1st March.
The return of the UK’s toughest open water swimming event will take place on Saturday 9th April 2016 in the water of the Forth & Clyde Canal at Maryhill Locks, Glasgow. Entries go live at 10am on Tuesday 1st March at redbull.co.uk/neptunesteps
The event is a mass participation contest, designed for competitive open water swimmers with a strong track record in swimming, triathlon, or adventure racing, keen to pit themselves against some of the UK and Ireland’s top endurance athletes. Red Bull are giving 200 competitors the opportunity to swim, climb, and conquer the ultimate endurance test. New for this year, the event will also feature an all female competition.
Last year’s winner Mark Deans of Glasgow who is currently in training for the Australian Open Water Championships in Sydney told us: ‘Swimming in the canal was a unique experience… and there were so many tough competitors’.
Since announcing the event on Thursday 18th February, thousands of potential competitors have signed up to register an interest in the event via Redbull.com. Swimmers interested in taking part are being urged to sign up as soon as possible to guarantee entry.
