Entries open for Red Bull Neptune Steps next March

Takes place on Saturday March 10th 2018 at Maryhill Locks in Glasgow

Entries are now open for Red Bull Neptune Steps in Glasgow on Saturday 10th March 2018.

There are 600 spaces to swim uphill and climb cargo nets in the Forth & Clyde canal.

Last year entries were limited to 300, so this year the event opens up to more than double last year’s intake.

Red Bull Neptune Steps challenges competitors in a true test as you have to swim through 420 metres of cold water and climb up 18 metres over seven canal lock gates – try doing that with frozen muscles.

The event takes place on Saturday March 10th 2018 at Maryhill Locks in Glasgow.

Entries are now open at redbull.co.uk/neptunesteps
