Sanctioned by Oregon Masters Swimming for U.S. 
Masters Swimming
Operating under special use authorization from the Rogue River Nat’l Forest

LOCATION & COURSE: Applegate Lake is located in the heart of the Siskiyou Mountains in southwestern Oregon.  The course for the longer races will consist of multiple 2.5K loops, while the 1500m course will be a single loop.  Water temperature on race day has varied from 71-77 degrees Fahrenheit and will be posted.

RACES:

Saturday: 10K, 5K, and 2.5K swims (swum simultaneously)
Sunday: 1500M and 3 x 500M Pursuit Relay

ELIGIBILITY:  This event is open ONLY to 2015 USMS members or foreign equivalents.  Eligibility will be automatically verified for online entries.  USMS “One-Event” membership is will be available for adults 18+ for all swims for $21.

RULES:  Current USMS rules will govern this event.  In all 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 loop roughly follows the shoreline of the lake on the way out and follows 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 feedings which may 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.
