Swim Course:

At the end of the bike segment participants will rack their bike in the transition and follow the signs to the pool noted by the sign “SWIM OUT” and “This Way to Swim”. Once you get on the pool deck you will be directed to the lane to enter the pool. Once you enter the pool, feet first only, you will swim to the opposite end and then cross under the lane line and swim in the new lane in the opposite direction. You will continue this process for 7 lengths (25 yards each) for a total of 175 yards of swimming. There will be a timing mat at that end of the pool to record your finish time. You will also get your finisher’s medal at the finish of the swim.

Participants can wear their shoes to the pool deck and a volunteer will pick them up and carry them to the swim exit at the finish. Please no shoes in the pool. Bring your goggles and if needed swim cap with you to the pool from the transition area. A swim cap is not required. Water temperature is 80-82 degrees so no wetsuits will be allowed.
