LOCATION & COURSE: Applegate Lake is located in the heart of the Siskiyou Mountains in southwestern Oregon. The course will consist of multiple 2.5K loops depending on your race selection. Water temperature on race day has varied from 70-74 degrees Fahrenheit and will be posted.
ELIGIBILITY: This event is open ONLY to 2013 USMS members or foreign equivalents. Eligibility will be automatically verified for online entries. A legible photocopy of 2013 USMS card or foreign equivalent MUST accompany mailed entries. USMS “One-Event” membership is will be available for adults 18+ for all swims.
RULES: Current USMS rules will govern this event. In the 10K swim, only Category I swimwear is allowed. In the remaining swims, Category II suits –including wetsuits—are allowed but will be scored in a separate category.
START/FINISH: All swims will start in the water and finish on the beach near the water’s edge. Each 2.5K loop roughly follows the contours of the lake shore on the way out and is approximately a straight line back to the start/finish area.
SAFETY—OUR PRIMARY CONCERN: Safety boats will monitor the entire course and medical personnel will be on-site. Swimmers must wear the swim cap provided, must have their race number on their arms, and must follow all announced safety rules without exception. 10K & 5K swimmers may provide their own beverages which will be placed on a table in 4-foot deep water near the starting line. Time Limit: Swimmers who cannot complete the 10K in 4.5 hours or the 5K in 2.5 hours should NOT enter; swimmers on the course after these time limits may be stopped and listed as DNF in the results.
