Safety – Our Primary Concern:   In case of inclement weather, the race director may close the course and prevent swimmers from completing the swim.  Entry fee includes a highly visible swim cap that must be worn as the top cap during the swim and all swimmers must have their race number on the provided cap.   Lifeguards, safety boats, and kayaks will monitor the entire race course.   Patrol boats will also be on the course for monitoring and safety.   The course will stay close to shore lines except when crossing the lake to return on the other shore.

Water Temperature:  Anticipated to be low to mid 70s on each lake.

Accommodations:  We will notify all registered swimmers on hotel options, and post touring options on the event page.
