Waves will be determined one week prior to the race. There will be ~5 waves with 3 minutes between each wave. The course is a counter-clockwise single out and back swim. Keep the buoys to your left. Exit at carpeted path and cross the street to the transition area…
In 2011 we offered a "Last Wave" category for those swimmer that weren't comfortable swimming in an early wave and dealing with the anxiety of having someone faster swim over you from the wave behind you. This was very popular and we are offering it once again for 2012. Be sure to select "Last Wave" during registration. Please note, this will take you out of your age group category and you NOT be eligible for age group awards. We are not awarding any "Last Wave" awards.
This should be a wetsuit legal swim. Water temperature will be somewhere between 69 and 75 degrees Farenheit. See USAT rules for all questions regarding the use of speedsuits and wetsuits (USAT). Please read this brochure concerning your wetsuit and where you swim. (click here for brochure). Let's keep the lake as clean as we can.
