We will have two course options. First, we will have a looped course measuring 225 meters in a triangle shape with buoys on each corner. Second, a shorter course that is 75 meters out and back, 150 meters round trip. Swimmers can swim as many loops as they wish within the 1.5 hour time limit. Please refer to the map for a visual for the short course.
The water is tested each season to ensure E. coli levels are safe for swimming. The tolerance for safe swimming at 125 part per million. This lake has never had a reading above 50 parts per million. However, even though the water test is good, this lake is prone to under water vegetation that can reach the surface. We will try to work around this but cannot guarantee vegetation free water.
The water temperature will vary throughout the season. We expect the temps to be in the 60’s for our first swim. Always bring a wetsuit to our swims just in case. As you arrive the water temp will be posted.
