The swim takes place in the Niagara River with a beach start using a time trial format. Athletes are lined up in numeric order with all F1 athletes first followed by all Sprint athletes. Once counted in, two or three people will enter the water at a time after walking over the timing mats. 

Weeds tend to grow in this section of the river but like the previous years, we will be cutting down them down.

The course is expected to be rectangular on the 1st loop and triangular on the 2nd swim.The water temperature is typically in the low 70s.  Wetsuits will be allowed.

This is a fast swim and the run to the Transition Area is considered in your swim time.
