River swimming has now started for all those eager to put their wetsuits to the test nice and early this year. There is a bunch of around 40 people who meet every Wednesday at 7pm down at the lifeguard hut at the weir on the Bleach Rd., Kilkenny (Click here for location) and anyone is welcome to come along.
The session includes some upstream and downstream swimming and is suitable for novices and experts. There is also a lifeguard that accompanies the group so safety is ensured for everyone. The sessions are €1 per person to cover the cost of the lifeguard and are a great way to train yourself for triathlon season and also great for those who are not currently using a pool for training.
Please note this is not a KTC organised training event
