Registration details and more information on the cycle below.

"This year cyclists can choose between a 120km or a 65km route.

The longer route will take you on a full circuit of Lough Derg giving participants the chance to cycle through three counties, Tipperary, Clare and Galway.

The shorter route will take you just beyond Killaloe to a turnaround point at Twomilegate lakeside amenity park.

The scenery along the way is unparalleled and gives participants a chance to appreciate the beauty of the River Shannon.

There is one big climb up Portroe hill to challenge you but it is short and sweet and before you know it you will be flying down the other side.

After your break in Portumna the route becomes undulating, providing plenty of small hills to keep you working hard right up to the last kilometre.

On your return to the Lifeboat Station at Lough Derg Yacht Club in Dromineer you can relax and enjoy some food and some well-earned drinks.

Hundreds of swimmers will be taking to the water starting from the slip at the Waterford Harbour Sailing Club in Dunmore East. There will be three swim options with distances of 1,600m, 800m and 500m. The first swim will start at 11.30am.

With a growing awareness of the health benefits of swimming and the recognition that open water swimming can provide an additional workout and also a mental health boost, Dunmore East RNLI will once again host this significant event that will see people take part in a rewarding swim challenge in a safe environment whilst also supporting the lifesaving work of the charity.

Speaking at the launch, Margaret Barry, chair of the fundraising branch at Dunmore East RNLI said: ‘I can’t believe that it’s been six years since our last swim event and we are really excited to be relaunching for 2023. An event like this provides essential funds for our volunteer lifeboat crew to continue vital lifesaving work here in Dunmore East. We live in one of the most beautiful parts of the country with a stunning coastline, and it really is the perfect location for a swim.’
