Swim, Bike & Run Course - Additional Details

Swim:

SWIM CAPS are provided and must be worn.

OPEN WATER SWIM TIPS:If you need assistance during the swim, roll over on your back and put your hand in the air and RELAX—don’t panic. A swim course safety monitor will assist you. If you need to hang on to a watercraft during the swim, please make sure you are not hanging on to one of the motorized safety boats. You may hang on to a non-motorized vessel (kayaks, canoes, or surfboards) without penalty, however if you hang on to the side of one of the motorized watercraft you
will be taken out of the water and disqualified.
