Swim Course: .25 miles Super Sprint and .5 miles Sprint
The .25 mile (Super Sprint) and .5 mile (Sprint) clockwise swim will start and finish at Sunset Beach. Athletes will leave in waves. If you're a little wobbly at the exit, you can grab hold of the hand rails - installed in the recent renovations - as you run out of the water. You'll run onto a paved sidewalk that will take you past the outdoor showers (feel free to use at will) and into transition.
