Please note: The waves will be spread-out over much longer period of time this year owing to the short multi-lap nature of the course and the fact that we have fully closed roads on the bike course. This will ensure that all participants have a safe, fair and fun experience on the day with plenty of room to ride. VIEW WAVE TIMES HERE

Swim – 750m
Water temperature is historically 74 degrees on race weekend with excellent water quality.
The course is Rectangular and you will be swimming with the buoys on your LEFT.
Swimmers will start in wave format. The corners of the course will be marked by large (5.5ft) Lime Green Tetrahedrons (3-Dimensional Triangles) and there will be smaller orange markers between the turns.
The swim start is the south side of the canal and will be an in-water start. The course is a counter-clockwise lap where swimmers will exit and run up the grandstands to the cheering crowd!
3 laps of a fully CLOSED bike course! No vehicles will be on the course at any point.
Athletes will complete 3 turn-arounds per lap, please ensure you are not in the aero position and have your hands on your brake levers when cornering.
Please take a look at the lap/finish diagram and familiarize yourself with it.
