Drogheda Triathlon Club are proud to join forces with Aura Leisure Ireland to host the Aura Boyne Swim 2019 with the continued support of Drogheda Port Company.

Aura Boyne Swim 2019 will take place on June 15th , start time confirmed for 10.40am.

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you to Drogheda for the 6th Boyne Swim!!

The number of swimmers taking part each year has grown steadily and the Boyne Swim is now a highly anticipated annual event for both open water swimmers and triathletes alike, competing for the beautiful perpetual trophies for overall Male, Female and Junior swimmer which were commissioned by Drogheda Port Company and designed by local sculptor Ronan Halpin.

The Boyne Swim course is 2.7km in distance starting in Mell Drogheda and finishing at The Boyne Fishermen Boathouse on the Marsh Road.   The swim will take you through Drogheda Port, passing under five bridges (The Bridge of Peace, Dominicks Bridge, Haymarket Bridge, St. Marys Bridge and finally the Viaduct Bridge), and finishing South East of the Viaduct Bridge.  The distances are marked on the image below and will be marked by buoys on the day of the Swim.

Rising in the Bog of Allen, County Kildare, the historic River Boyne flows 113km northeast to enter the Irish Sea just below Drogheda at Mornington County Meath. June is the perfect time for the swim with water temperatures ranging in between 10° to 13° Celsius.

Swimmers are encouraged to wear wetsuits but those who are brave enough often take part in togs of all shapes and sizes…

Detailed Race Day Instructions will be sent to all registered swimmers closer to the event.
