COURSE: The course consists of 4 loops of a 1250 meter quadrangular course swum in a clockwise manner. The venue is Morse Park and Beach, a public park and beach on Morse Reservoir. The average reservoir temperature in mid-September is about 75 degrees F, but water temperature can vary significantly from the low 70’s to the low 80s.

Swimmers failing to complete the course in the allotted time may be asked to exit the water. The Meet Referee (with approval of the Event Director and the Safety Director) may allow a swimmer to finish the race after the allotted time limit if safety officials are able to escort the swimmer to a safe and secure finish in a timely manner. In the case of bad weather or other hazardous conditions or events out of the control of the Event Director, the entire event may be delayed, abbreviated, interrupted, abandoned or cancelled. No refunds will be provided.
