Over 100 triathletes and open water swimmers are expected on Sunday, August 6, for A Long Swim – Tower Road Beach - Winnetka. Registration begins at 6:00am, and the swims begin at 7:00am. Below is important information: 

·         The events will start at different times; the 5K will go first at 7:00AM, with the remaining distances following in safe increments.

·         Our goal is to have 50 or fewer swimmers per starting wave; registrations may dictate that we split an event into multiple waves.

·         We will utilize an in-water start in the location at the gate as indicated on the map. 

·         Swimmers will be logged onto the course as they cross the timing treadle on the beach, but the clock will only start when the horn sounds.

·         The finish will be logged when the swimmers cross the timing treadle on the beach.

·         All swims will be counterclockwise.

·         As swimmers will swim multiple laps of the course, the beginning of each lap will be the original starting line.

·         When swimmers have completed their required number of laps of the course, they will exit the course through the gate and swim to the finishing archway on the beach.

·         All corner buoys will be kept to the swimmers’ left shoulders.

·         There will be 10 lifeguards in kayaks around the course, and three motorboats also with safety personnel.

.          We have a secured gear area for your peace of mind. #wegotyoucovered
