2018 Swim Waves (*subject to change)

See detailed swim course information. 

Swimming is allowed at the lake daily. We recommend when you are doing your practice swim, you stay close to the island of Sandy Point Beach (swim start for the event-around the island-to the swim exit for the event), to keep yourself separated from the normal boat traffic at the lake. You will be responsible for your own safety as the lake does not have lifeguards on a daily basis. During the event, we will have lifeguards, kayaks and boats for your safety and the swim portion of the event is not open to non triathlon support boats during the duration of the swim portion of the event.
