The swim course is one loop
You will line up with your swim wave / swim cap color (waves are TBA)
The swim direction and swim course may be changed the morning of the race due to water & weather conditions
After exiting the swim you will run up the beach, along the paved path to transition.
**Please use caution transition from beach to path - there are 2-3 steps that will become covered with sand. There will be a volunteer to caution you, but please use caution on the steps.
Wetsuits are not mandatory, but recommended as water temps are only expected to be in the 60's.
Please label wetsuit with your name to avoid confusion in transition.
