SWIM COURSE: 1500 Meter Swim
The swim course will start at the beach at Lake Guntersville state Park. Athletes will start in wave starts from the docks and will swim parallel to the shore keeping the boueys to their left. The swim course will be triagular in shape. Athletes will turn left once they swim past the large green bouey. After the second turn, athletes will return to the docks keeping the boueys again on their left, and exit the water at the beach.
THe water temperatures in this location will be in the upper 60's to low 70's for the race and this will most certainly be a WETSUIT LEGAL swim event.
