This Saturday, the much-anticipated return of Red Bull Neptune Steps is set to make a splash in Glasgow, at Maryhill Locks on Saturday 9th April, 12pm.
The open-water adventure race like no other is back, with competitors travelling from all over to compete in the only event of its kind, anywhere in the world. Glasgow will welcome athletes from Ireland, Sweden, the Netherlands, France, Switzerland and Canada, along with participants from the rest of the UK who are all set to take on the unique challenge of swimming uphill.
Since announcing the return of Red Bull Neptune Steps earlier this year, race entries sold out in just 9 minutes, such was the demand for the UK’s toughest open-water endurance test.
Red Bull Neptune Steps will see some of the UK and Ireland’s finest swimming and multi-sport athletes take to the cold canal waters, including Scottish open water champion Mark Deans; Team Scotland Commonwealth Games triathlete Marc Austin; and Con Docherty, one of the world’s leading junior triathletes.
Red Bull Neptune Steps is free to attend for spectators, who are encouraged to get down early on Saturday to catch all of the action from this one-of-a-kind open-water spectacle.
