Following an extensive consultation process we are excited to announce that the 2023 Liffey Descent will take place on Saturday 6th May. The new spring date will ensure the best possible water levels and weather conditions for one of our biggest and best events of the year.
A long time highlight on both the domestic and international marathon racing calendar, this race promises a return to the top level racing and fantastic community involvement. The race will feature the same stunning 30km route along the river Liffey, taking in the beautiful surroundings and the thrills of 10 weirs along the route. This year we also have several new Women’s categories in Open Canoe, with womens Canoe double and triples being contested for the first time.
Entries for the 2023 race are now open –
