The race takes place in the iconic area of Bull Wall, overlooking the Poolbeg Chimneys across Dublin Bay. A 1000m sea swim with a flat and sandy out and back beach run of 5km will be on the cards for the adult and junior championships. The youth race will take place over a shorter 500m swim and a shorter 2.5km out and back run, with an earlier turnaround than the 5km race.
