The Swim 3/4 Mile:
The reservoir offers some of the cleanest water around, and features 65 to 70 degree water temperature in May. Wetsuits are encouraged for safety, but are not mandatory. The swim course is well marked and participants swim around a natural wooded and tree-lined peninsula. Swimmers follow the shoreline and finish at the boat ramp on the opposite side of the start.

Elevation Gain: 462 ft.
Drafting: Drafting is illegal. The race sells out to capacity every year, and we ask your help in doing the best we can to help enforce the “NO DRAFTING” rules.. You, the athlete, are the simplest and best way to keep the bike course safe and draft free. We will have officials out on the bike course, but you personally need to help the sport and yourself by simply backing out of packs, slowing down or verbally mentioning to other athletes not to draft or block the roadway by riding 2 or 3 abreast.
