Event notes
Swim 4 Orán will be a charity open water swimming event and family fun day hosted by Lurgan Masters and Open Water Swim Club in conjunction with the Children's Heartbeat Trust.

Race distances will include 750m, 1.5k and 3k.
Additionally, we will have a 150m maximum Try a Swim, open to adults and children (parents can accompany their child if they wish) and a 150m fun swim with Ripples Special Olympics Swim Club.
Wetsuit and Skins swim available for the adult entries only. Children under 14 MUST wear wetsuits

We aim to provide something fun for everyone in the water or on dry land with a range of attractions and amusements to keep non-swimmers entertained.

We are doing all this to raise funds for the Children's Heartbeat Trust and in memory of Orán Creaney.
Orán is the late grandson of one of our founding members, Francie McAlinden. He was born in June 2008 with a single ventricle heart. His heart condition coupled with a feeding peg meant that he had little energy and was tube fed three times a day. This never got him down and he was proud of his “Special Heart”. He loved life and making people happy.

Sadly, after his third open heart surgery, Orán passed away on the 7th of October 2014. He was 6 years old. In memory of this brave little boy, we challenge you to “Swim 4 Orán”. Whether you’re an experienced swimmer or just want to give it a go we’ve something for everyone.
