Swim Course:

Swim Course Key Features:
Distance = 400-Meter Swim
• The popular indoor swim is held in the competition pool at the MU Student Recreation Complex (8 x 50-meter laps).
• "Snake-Style" Swim - Swimmers will start individually, swimming one behind the other. You will do "laps" to the end of the pool (swim to the end of one lane, duck under the ropes and swim to the end of that lane, duck under the ropes, and so on).
• Swimmers will line up according to swim time. Please time yourself at 400 Meters before the race so that you can estimate an accurate time. If you estimate your time too fast or too slow, it will hurt your overall time and the others around you. Your best time will come if you do not pass or get passed. We reserve the right to remove athletes from the pool and re-start them if needed.
• If you must pass, simply tap the toes of the person in front of you. If your toes are tapped, move to the side and let the person through.

Transition Area:

The transition area will be located on the track at Stankowski Field (bikes will be racked directly on the track, all the way around). The area has been designed first and foremost with the safety and ease of traffic movement in mind. From the swim, racers will run from the swimming pool into the transition area through the Run In Door. You will exit on your bike through the Bike Out Door, which exits left onto Maryland Avenue. After the bike is completed, racers will enter the transition area through the Bike In Door, rack your bike in its appropriate spot, and head out of the Run Out Door, running by the sand volleyball pits and the Recreation Center. Arrows, signs, and volunteers will help you transition in and out of the area.
