Registration for the first 400 athletes to compete in the Red Bull Neptune Steps open today.

Red Bull Neptune Steps requires athletes to swim and climb 420 meters of cold water and climb 18 meters over seven canal lock gates.

Last year, it took only 8 minutes before Scotland’s most unique open water race was filled. Register here for the March 18th event.
