Registration is now open for the Aura Boyne Swim, so get the togs or wetsuit out and get training!
One of our favourite events on the Irish open water swimming calendar is back with a bang, the newly named Aura Boyne Swim will take place on Saturday 16 June 2018. Swimmers turn out in their droves to Drogheda, Co Louth every year to take on the 2.7km course. And registration is now open, with the entrance fee for adults costing €30 and €15 for minors.
Take to the warm waters (hopefully) of the historic River Boyne for your chance to win one of their stunning trophies designed by local sculptor Ronan Halpin, and commissioned by Drogheda Port Company.
The hosts, Drogheda Triathlon Club have teamed up with the swim coaching team at Aura Leisure to put together a training program that will be free to all participants for download on the Aura Leisure and Boyne Swim websites and will be available to pick up in all of the Aura Leisure centres from 12 February. They will also have a range of tailored swim courses for those who need to improve the swim stroke and stamina before the big swim!
Ray Donagh of the Boyne Swim says, “Drogheda Triathlon Club invite you to take part in this majestic swim in the River Boyne through the historic town of Drogheda and see it like you never saw it before. We are looking forward to launching the event and promoting it to a much wider audience so that they can experience the wonder of open water swimming.”
Aura Leisure’s Chief Executive says, “It is a brilliant event on the Irish Open Water Swimming Calendar and one that people of all levels can take part in. It’s just another step on our way to helping make a healthier, happier Ireland!”

The event is supported by Drogheda Port Company and Louth County Council.
