Course Details:
 All distances will be setup as an out and back loop, which was received well by athletes in 2019.  The 1.2 mile swim distance will take you .6 miles out from Lake Gardner Beach to a turn around buoy right before Battis Farm. Endurance swimmers completing the 2.4 mile swim will complete this out and back course, twice.

Swim + Run Details: Athletes will begin with a .6 swim out to Battis Farm to the swim exit. There you will immediately begin a 2 mile (approximate) trail run back to the finish at Lake Gardner. Shoes are required, as a portion of it is a rooty trail. Most of you will wear your shoes during the swim, but if you don't, you can drop your shoes off at swim exit pre-race. Event staff will bring all of your belongings back to the finish for you.  There will be a fuel station setup for you at the exit if you need a sip of water or Gatorade.

Race Ages: Participants must be at least 13 years old to participate in this open water swim. Anyone 18 and under will require a parent/guardian signature to participate.
