A number of our swim organisers have asked us to highlight the importance of entering swims as early as you can. Late entries mean that organisers do not know how many swimmers to cater for. This has implications in many areas such as organising safety cover, ordering swim gear and/or post-swim refreshments and even in determining if the swim can actually go ahead. A number of swims were cancelled last summer due to entries not coming in early enough. Organisers need to be certain that they will be able to cover their costs, and if entries are low then they may have to make the decision to cancel their event.
So please, if you are intending to do swims this summer, please do not leave your entry to the last minute. We have compiled a list of all of the upcoming swims over the next month and their entry requirements and links for registration. The list is here, thanks to Carol Cashell for putting it together. Please have a look and see if there are any events on the list that you plan on entering, and if so…now is your chance! The Munster events list for the rest of the summer is also linked on the same page.
Happy swimming 🙂
