Triathlon 1 Swim:
3 Mile and 1.8 Mile Swim Course
We are expecting the water temperature to be around 68 degrees by the first week of May. Take a look at the Maryland DNR statistics for the Nanticoke River. Wet suits are highly recommended. Bonzai Sports will provide wet suit rentals at a special daily rate for this event. You must register for the wet suite prior to race day. A link will be provided directly to their rental site.
The swim course will be an in the water start and sandy beach finish. The start will begin in shallow water next to a jetty. Swimmers will swim out beyond the end of the jetty and turn right to begin a triangular section of the course.
Triathlon participants refer to the triathlon page.
3 mile participants in light blue caps will complete a triangle with approximate distances of .9 mile and then return to the finish. The triangle will be marked by buoys and boats. The three mile participants will go around the triangle two times before returning to the beach for the finish. During the finish, keep the buoy on your left, turn into the finish stretch for last 300 yards to a sandy beach. Finish line will be beyond the grassy dune. On the 3 mile course there will be two boats on the far corners to aid in navigation, in addition to several buoys and lifeguards with paddleboards.
1.8 mile participants will complete the same course as the 3 mile participants except they will only complete one time around the triangle portion.
