Red Bull #neptune steps has built a fearsome reputation from the first event last year. dryrobe provided all 100 competitors with a custom event dryrobe thanks to Red Bull. They were needed. It proved to be seriously cold. This year there were 200 competitors. We supplied the winners with the dryrobe advance as prizes this year & the air temperature was kinder but that water is cold!
The unique format open-water swimming race is an adventure race / obstacle course race which involve swimming through 420 metres of cold water, with 8 canal lock gates to climb along the way.
Well done to the winners! And What an achievement by Mark Deans (last years champion) winning this year again!! Awesome!
