Please see the map here. The course is a 750 meter loop. The 750 meter race is one lap, 1500 is two laps, 2250 is three laps.
How will Swim Fest be timed?
Each race will be an “in water” mass start. You will be assigned a wave number for your start and everyone in that wave will be given the same start time (like in a triathlon). You will wear a timing chip on your ankle. After completing the designated number of laps you will exit the water and run through a finish arch, just off the edge of the water, which will stop your time.
How will my Swim Fest swim wave be determined?
Within each race we will have two waves to minimize the total number of swimmers per wave. Swim waves will be published approximately one week before the event.
