Open Water Swimming Event Glendalough
08 September 2012
2012 sees Open Water Swimmer host, for the first time, a swim in the most visited lake in the Glendalough National Park. The combination of the stunning scenery and the fascinating monastic history make for an opportunity not to be missed. Glendalough Valley was carved out by glaciers during the Ice Age and has two lakes, from which Glendalough gets its name, 'Valley of the two Lakes', the upper being the venue for this event. Spring fed waters, oak lined banks and on the edge of the Wicklow mountains with sprint 750m, Olympic 1.5km and a 1.9km half iron distance to choose from, the first Glendalough swim has something for everyone and is a race not to be missed.
Address: Glendalough, Co Wicklow
