#TeamIrfon Pier to Pier Swim 2019

Building on the success of the 2014 #TeamIrfon swim which raised £4,000 for #TeamIrfon, the North West Wales cancer care fund, and the Castle to Castle swim in 2017 which raised a further £12,000 for #TeamIrfon, a Beaumaris Pier to Bangor Pier is now being organised on Saturday 7th September from 4pm.

This Pier to Pier swim event is being organised by a group of volunteers who organised the previous #TeamIrfon swims and is supported by Duncan Gilroy of the Seawake in Menai Bridge.

The (approximately) 2 mile swim can only be undertaken by proficient swimmers who have experience of open water swimming, but anyone can take part in cheering the swimmers on from Bangor Pier and get involved in the celebrations after the swim, which are expected to go on into the evening.

In addition, you can support the swim in a sea kayak, making the journey alongside the swimmers from a Beaumaris Pier to Bangor Pier.

Spectators are asked to come along to Bangor Pier from 4pm on Saturday 7th September. The swimmers are expected to arrive at Bangor Pier from 4:45pm.

All swimmers and support kayakers must register to be part of this event, and all must agree to the terms and conditions in order to take part. All swimmers under the age of 18 must have parental consent to take part in this event.
