Organiser’s Description

The toughest open-water swimming race in the UK returns to Glasgow, with endurance athletes all set to take on the challenge of swimming uphill! This is an adventure race like no other: swimming 420 metres in cold water through Glasgow’s Maryhill Locks – that’s the simple part; where it starts to get more complicated is when swimmers are asked to climb 18 metres over 8 canal lock gates - after all, you can’t breaststroke your way up a climbing wall, can you? Basically an assault course on water...
