River Moy Swim Race, the oldest River Swim in Ireland

July 13 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Become One of Ballina’s Swimming Greats this July 13th by swimming the Moy Swim.

One of the oldest river swims in Ireland, the Moy Swim is taking place again this year. In conjunction with Swim Ireland , the  River Moy Swim  returned to the banks of the Moy in 2018 after an absence of  more than 30 years.

The annual River Moy Swim will take place on 13th July 2024 during Ballina Salmon Festival.

There are two adult swim challenges to choose from:

  • 600m (finishing at Bachelor’s Walk)
  • 2.5km (finishing at the Quay)

There is also a youth race with a distance of 600m.

This unforgiving swim offers a fantastic opportunity to experience a competitive race in the scenic surrounds of the Ballina along the Wild Atlantic Way, while supported in open water, so sign up today. This is a competitive and participative event.
