We have confirmed a new date for Red Bull Neptune Steps – November 7-8, 2020.

As before, the men's competition will take place on Saturday, November 7 the women's and pairs' competition will take place on Sunday, November 8.

All participants currently registered for the original March event automatically have a place in the new November event. All heat allocations and times will remain the same.


The Maryhill Locks will once again be the setting for the UK’s toughest open water swimming challenge, as Red Bull Neptune Steps return to Glasgow with exciting new elements.

To accommodate growing demand, the 2020 event will be the biggest ever held in the city, as it expands to a second day, doubling the number of participants from 2019.

More than 1,000 hardy souls will have the chance to enter icy-cold waters of the Forth and Clyde Canal and battle through the course, which includes seven lock gates, each with its own obstacle for the competitors to negotiate.

While the challenge has typically been dominated by endurance athletes and experienced open-water swimmers, Red Bull Neptune Steps 2020 will include a more accessible pairs relay competition. Same sex or mixed pairs can now tackle the course together, meaning competitors only need to complete half of the gruelling course which includes a 420m swim and 10.5-meter obstacle climb.

Red Bull Neptune Steps will take place on Saturday 7th November (men’s heats) and Sunday 8th November (women’s and pairs heats) 2020 at Maryhill Locks in Glasgow.

The race is open to men and women aged 16+. Entrants can compete individually as well as in pairs.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Red Bull Neptune Steps are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
