Event description
Welcome to the 2020 Galley Head Swim. This years challenging 10km event is being run on Saturday 25th July

About this Event

It's that time of year again. We start to look for fun and mad adventures to complete during the long summer months. After last years hugely successful Galley Head Swim we are yet again getting organised for the bigger and better event in 2020.

The Galley Head swim starts at the beautiful Red Strand beach in Ardfield. From there it is 10km of open water swimming around the iconic Galley Head Lighthouse, past the Doolic Rock, along by the long strand beach, past Owenahinca and finely into the Warren Beach at Rosscarbery. This will truly be one of the most, challenging, scenic and exhilarating open water swims you will do in 2020. Expected swim times of between 3 to 6 hours will be needed to complete the course.

This years event will yet again see 100% of all funds raised by the swimmers going to our two main charities, Marymount Hospice and West Cork Underwater Search and Rescue. Last year the swimmers raised over €18,000 for these charities and we hope to increase this amount in 2020.

There are two main swim groupings, solo and relay. Relay teams can only have between 2 to 4 swimmers per team. Entry fee for the solo swimmers is €350 and for the relay teams entry will be €700. Swimmers on registering here will be required to pay a deposit to secure their start on the day. This deposit will then make up part of their entry fee. All money collect over the entry fee amount will be added to the money divided to the charities

So what is stopping you, get signed up today and be part of this successful event again in 2020.
