Jailbreak swim

As part of their launch of the Jailbreak Tri, Cobh Tri Club are inviting 5 Cork Tri members to do the race swim route  with them next Wednesday . It’s  a great chance to get to do the route before the race and also a fantastic swim in its own right.

The boat will be leaving at 18:45 on next Wednesday the 14th from Cobh. Exact details will be sent on early next week. Please e-mail admin@corktri.com if you wish to do the swim and we will contact the first 5 people to e-mail us.

Please do not put your name forward unless you have already completed a swim of this length this year.
