Course Description And Maps
- Know your 1500 meter (1,650 yards in a 25 yard pool, 66 lengths) pool swim time so you can seed yourself at race start. The first swimmer goes off at 6:40 AM. Swim will be a Time Trial start, athletes will seed themselves according to swim times. It is imperative you know your swim time in a pool for 1,500 meters (1,650 yards in a 25 yard pool, 66 lengths).
Time trial start means each athlete will activate their own start time when they are instructed by the timer to cross the timing mat before entering the water. The faster swimmers will seed themselves to go at the beginning of the race entry line and slower swimmers towards the end. We will have signs for swim times from 20 minutes and under, 21 – 25 minutes, 26 to 30 minutes, 31 – 35 minutes and 36 – 40 minutes. The course is down on one side of a line of buoys and back on the other. Make sure you can swim 1500 meters without stopping as you will not be able to touch the bottom at any point.
